Receiver hitch fit?

Looking to get a receiver hitch. I have drop-shackles and 3" exhaust tips and don't know if it'll fit in there. The spare tire's gone but how big are receiver hitches for rangers?

Look at the frame, the hitch will bolt to the outermost side of each frame rail.

the stock one does, anyhow.

there are others out there that may fit between your exhaust tips. i have one from uhaul that bolts to the bottom of the frame and is narrower that the stocker.

You will have to move your exhaust. Here is a picture of mine that you can use for reference:

My tips are right under my frame rails so I guess the U-haul one might fit. Is that the only hitch that fits on the inside of the frame?
