    Thanks man. It bolts on perfectly. I went with 2" Flat bar 3/8" thick and used the factory holes. You think 4 points will be strong enough? I also added 1" sq tub supports that go from the frame plates to the hitch

    Yeah should be good, my old hitch had 4 bolts. What are you hauling? If its not too heavy, I don't see a problem.
    If in doubt, add a couple gussets

    thanks man, i love fabbing with steel so easy! I wanted to leave room for my license plate since its only 5" plate

    I wont be hauling anything bigger than single axle 3000 lbs. So 300 lbs will be the max tongue weight it will see. Once bigger tires and armor go on, there isnt much power left to pull a tandem trailer. Plus i would have to wire in a 7 way plug and brake controller.

    My clutch has been getting soft lately so im planning on upgrading to a HD clutch kit. Been looking at the Marlin 1,200lb kit and the TG 1,600lb kit. Both are around $300

    Meanwhile im going to try and adjust the peddle to see if that helps at all. Went out and measured the clutch freeplay and its definitely off from factory specs.

    My Clutch peddle free play: 6 5/8"
    Factory free play: 6.692−7.086"

    My Push Rod free play: 1"
    Factory free play: 0.197 − 0.591"
