rear hitch installation.
Got rained out putting crops in the ground so I had my son and nephew help install my hitch.
It's a weld on modified to bolt on. Rather than weld on we marked the factory holes in the bumper and drilled the brackets to fit.
Removed the tow hook assembly. That had 1/2 bolts. Had to use a bridge reamer to enlarge the factory holes in the frame from up to 5/8. The bumper bracket holes are slotted so had to trim a little off with the plasma cutter.
This is a 20k curt hitch with the 2 1/12 inch receiver. I will never pull that much but I wanted it to be plenty big.
Proud dad moment. My son wearing protective gear without being told to. Should have had sleeves and better shoes that didn't collect sparks but I will take what I can get from this one.
