Just a few more days and my three week vacation starts! :thumb:

Going to spend a week on the beach and then do some camping. Gotta build a trailer also. Do some Offroading and then I'm going to sit around and do nothing for a few days. 8)

It wasnt too bad to do. Just take your time getting it centered and placed correctly. I put mine 2" ahead of the centerline of the axle. I have heard from 0 inches to 4 inches will work. Go at least one inch so you get the benefit of the hitch.

I also have a box full of 1/2 bolts if you need any more. I put two bolts per bracket and I notice that many of them only use one bolt per bracket.

I think that I should be good we will probably just measure where it is in truck it is in before we pull it out and reuse all the hardware.....we will see how well it was installed from the pro's......
