Re: Hitch Rattle solved

I'm glad you did bump this thread back up because I hadn't seen it. I had my motorcycle trailer hooked to the Jeep empty a month or so ago and thought the entire thing had come loose and/or the rear suspension was falling out the moment I left the driveway due to all the noise going on back there. My wife and daughter were freaking out and it wasn't until I was able to replicate the noise by jumping up and down on the trailer frame that they agreed to take off again. I never heard that with the 3 Dodge trucks I pulled the same trailer with before. The Jeep must either have a really loose reciever, or all the noise transmits directly into the cab, or both.

Thanks for the info. on the Hitch-Vise!

Re: Hitch Rattle solved

But my question remains...is it normal and safe to tow with this woggle or lose hitch mount?

Re: Hitch Rattle solved

Yes, it's just hard ignoring the noise. The hitch vendor should have made the tubing a tad smaller. It's more of Ford fopar.

Re: Hitch Rattle solved

Just ordered the hitch vise. I towed a small u-haul trailer this weekend over the pot hole ridden SE MI roads and holy crap was that a lot of noise.
