Is the 82208219 the right hitch? Did the dealer do me wrong?

I just got 82208219 hitch from the dealer and it does not look like the same part number pictured in the catalogs. What I got was a 2" receiver that sandwiches the rear cross member. What I saw in the pictures was a large subframe type hitch that was nearly as wide as the bumper and connected the two side frame rails to the back.
The dealer tell me this hitch is only good for 350# tongue weight and 2000# towing, unless I have weight distribution equipment. WTF?
Anyone have any ideas? I specifically ordered the class 4 with the 7500# capacity, they say thats what I got, but it looks nothing like the pictures, and there was never any mention of weight distributing equipment, nor does there appear to be any factory option for that.
