BEEFY!

Built myself a drop hitch today:





The part that slides into the receiver is solid 2" bar and the main hitch part is 1"x4.5" solid bar. The rear main gusset is 1" thick by 3" narrowing to .5" over 12" of length. The other gussets are 1/2". Should hold up pretty well [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Re: BEEFY!

Truck has 8" of lift with 39.50's and I pull a 8 foot long by 6 foot wide dump trailer. Weighs around 1500 pound empty but 6k pounds full. We'll see what happens...
