I came into a free (important point) trailer hitch receiver today and decided it was worth the gamble as I didn't have any measurements handy. Unfortunately, the receiver mounting is 42" on the inside and my frame is 34" at the mounting point. With that in mind, do I have any options with this hitch, or should I forget about trying to make it work?
Pictures for reference. Hitch:
I was thinking my two options are to space 4" either side with square tubing or something and run bolts through + weld, or cut and reweld the receiver bar. Neither of these options actively excites me, but has anyone tried this or has any other ideas?
