Those are better if you ever put a body lift on. They aren't as funny-lookin as the straight across ones because of the "dip" in the middle of it. Good choice

I never thought I would be Accessorizing a truck.
I thought only my wife did the accessorizing, now I see where all the money goes.

toolbox, roll bar, brush gaurd, lights,spray on bed liner, man it never ends..

I guess when she buys a pair of earings or new shoes I better shut the fu&k up from now on

oh, and possibly a body lift
I'll drink to that

Default Re: New receiver hitch in today, and now installed

That was the easiest rec. hitch ever to install

No drilling , just remove 2 bolts and nuts and use the supplied hardware that
came with the receiver.

I guess it took 30 minutes tops, and that includes finding the right socket.
and moving the cars around .

I am glad I went with the tube style as it does conform with the body and really do not see it.

I have the 3" PA body lift. Suspension lift won't change the look of the hitch. It'll all raise up together...
