So i was installing the trailer hitch and i think i ended up crossing the threads on one of the weldnuts. Since the frame is boxed, there really isnt anything i can do about this is there?

do i need to take it to the dealer to get it fixed?

You could always drill it.
if you take the rear bumper off you can see down the frame rail. im not excactly sure where it bolts on but you can always use the shrockwork slider "nut-on-a-wire" approach.
