2\" Receiver - Part Deux!
Ok, here's the problem. I want to install a 2" receiver on my Samurai. I want a bolt-on like RR offers. I don't have the capability to modify bumper hitches,etc. and I don't want the added cost of having one fabbed by a local shop, and most won't do it due to liability. The Samurai's not intended to tow things needing a 2" receiver. Ok, the problem, I was told that the "inserts" (I don't know what else to call them, the hitch part) I currently have, and are rated at 6000 lbs won't fit the 2" receivers currently being offered for the Samurai, which are claimed to accept only CLASS I and II pieces. BUT, hitch web sites state that CLASS II is 1 1/4" inches, not 2". I don't want to buy an additional bunch of adapters as I have several different rise and drop pieces for the different trailers. I'll never tow over 1000 lbs, but I need my current stuff to fit. Anyone have any experience with the ones on the market and if they accept any 2" pieces, etc? It doesn't seem right to me, but I don't want to shell out $50 + s&h to find out it won't work. Thanks !
