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 !

Re: 2\" Receiver - Part Deux!

Hey Voo Doo, have you tried it with ones with ratings like 5000 or 6000 lbs? Glenn says that they have more squared off edges, but mine look sort of rounded and I've never had a problem with them fitting anything before.

Re: 2\" Receiver - Part Deux!

a 2" reciever will fit with any 2" slidy part (hitch)... what its rated at has to do with the strength of the unit and how it mounts etc...

Re: 2\" Receiver - Part Deux!

That's what "I" thought!! One of the sellers told me that the higher rated parts were allot more square and wouldn't fit his receiver. I've been towing for 25 years and I've never seen a difference. Thanks Texas that's the confirmation I needed.
