Re: Trailer Hitches

What like this http://www.hitchcorner.com/images/ac...tech_mount.gif

A drop hitch receiver otherwise?

Your hitch attaches to your frame. Dropping that down I could see would cause some issues and look god aweful.

Re: Trailer Hitches

just get a reciever with a drop depending on how far you need it to be level. my 06wk and my old man emu lift i had to buy a 5" drop reciever to tow anything fairly level, i should have bought atleast a 6" though

Re: Trailer Hitches

I am using a 5 1/4" Drop right now, and agree that you could probably go a little lower if your trailer is fairly low, otherwise I feel the 5 1/4" seems to be pretty good for most stuff (I believe it ends up to about the same drop as a 3" on a WJ)

Does anyone know of any stainless drop hitches.
