    does anybody have the pictures of during the install? what is the best size trailer hitch bars?

    Or is there a way to fix dead pictures?

    Hey, Pictures don't really help after doing it, you'll realize how.

    You don't need to drill out any of the plastic rivets, the grill and front bumper pop right off, after undoing about 6 bolts and a couple plastic clips under the fender flares.

    I used a class 2 receiver, with a 3 1/2inch drop. If I had a band saw at the time, I would have cut an inch off the end of the receiver. This way I wouldn't have had to cut as much out of the front bumper. I also used 5/8 inch d-rings, and they held up when I went out (and we pulled through some stick mud!)

    There are pics of the finished project, feel free to pm me if you have any other questions about the fabrication.

    why does it look like the middle of your bumper is slightly bowed out?
