I know I and others had the issue where the heat of the exhaust was directed toward the rear bumper and would cause deformation after the installation of an aftermarket hitch (mine was Draw-Tite - can't speak to Curt). With the purchase of my second Metris, I ordered another Draw-Tite hitch and was pleasantly surprised to see it now includes a heat shield. I purchased it and the harness from eTrailer.com and have been really happy with their customer service. The photos and descriptions don't currently indicate the heat shield has been added but hopefully they adjust that soon. I emailed them and told them including that bit of info may make or break a sale since people were having issues with the deformation. Not sure if they have mixed stock of the old and new design or not. Might be worth asking if you order.

Anyway, links to the hitch and harness are below:
