New Rig & Hitch
Installation of a new trailer hitch
She’s hitched up and ready to roll!!
Bet y’all didn’t kno that putin on a hitch would fix dat power steerin that been vexing me!
An aint it amazin’ how the extra weight done smoothdid out the ride.
Gonnna need me to air up them rear tares a bit I reckon.
Added me some super heavy-duty chain for extra support on the tailgate, (note the ‘Heavy-Duty ‘S’ hooks I use to attach ems.)
Also paid-up for some BIG Number 5/16 sheet metal screws to attach the Reese hitch frame to the tailgate (see ’em there? one on each side…) Y’all can’t cee but I also got two more through the carpet inside….
Yeper, probably overkill, but didn’t want the possibility of having an axerdent.
Most of the time i done spent on the front porch whittling down that MASSIVE solid pine 4×4 to fit preciseamently down into the hole in the ball mount receiver.
Note also – The 14″x14″ piece of 3/8′ plywood on the underside of the tailgate to distribute the load more evenly and beef up that tailgate support.
‘A MAN CAN’T BE TOO SAFE’…!!
I’ll be heading yourins way shortly after my g’ment check gits here. Cee y’all soon!
Git Er Done!
