I have the shackle w/receiver so mine goes in the front hitch or rear. Rangers are somewhat limited to options unlike Jeeps.

I thought my dual pipes were going to be in the way also, but I got a hidden hitch from Uhaul and it actually sits inside the frame and there is usually enough room between the pipes. Take it there and I'm sure they would be able to tell you if they can do it or not.

if you still have your spare tire under your truck, you should be ok with a hitch because theyre the same width pretty much
