MAKE SURE YOU DISCONNECT YOUR PLATE LIGHTS!!!!! i ALMOST RIPPED THEM OUT ONCE!
And 2 bolts on each side would total 4 right. 2 + 2= 4

You got me there.

But seriously, $300 is too much. Make it your first DIY job.

because 300 is a lot for a hitch. but my guess is most of that money is coming from labor. save some money, do it yourself. trust me its so easy! just torque the bolts after. and it takes no time at all. just get a second person to help you put it in place.

Yeah putting it in place yourself sucks, I had to bench press it up there on my back and then hold it with one arm and put the bolts in with the other. It was intresting

I have a 1998 Ranger short cab XLT. The bolts to the frame (4) refuse to un-screw to remove the rear bumper. It seems there is a metal link from one bolt to the other bent over to prevent the bolts from loosening. Has any one experienced this in removing a rear bumper? The socket is 18mm. The bolts will not budge. It may be the tabs are welded to the bolts. I tried everything with no luck.
