    Default Best Civi 2 inch hitch?

    I'm going to need to add a conventional 2 inch hitch to my M1028. Will this work with my truck or are there better options?

    Better off with a class 4 if you want to tow anything.

    Hey Tom - I believe it’s against the forum rules to post a link to an active auction. You might want to remove that link before you are caught, tried, convicted, and sentenced. The site administrators are notorious for sending violators to Guantanamo. Just trying to help.

    I don't think that e-bay link is considered an "active auction"

    No e-bay links at all are allowed.

    Please abide by the following rules concerning the posting of auction information in the forums:
    Do NOT post about future or current GL/GP(GovPlanet)/GSA/eBay (including items for sale in buy-it-now formats)/local/city/state/Federal/estate auctions. You may post about any auction after the auction is closed.

    I recall I might have had to trim a tab off a bumper support for bolt clearance or something, it was just a bit, and sawzall did it, and had to drill 4 of the 6 holes, but other than that, it fit right in.
