What to do?

When I got my BL I have not been sure on what to do with my exhaust and hitch. What do you guys think I should do...? Get the tips raised, redirected to straight out the back? What should I do about the hitch?

i think the exhaust looks ok where its at, but the hitch would look better if it was moved up.

I mounted mine IN the frame-rails instead of on the bottom.

Wow, how strong is that? For some reason, I wouldn't want to put my 5200 pound boat on that...

I've been pulled out by that (when I was stuck bad) and I tow my little 16' boat by it. I wouldn't tow 5,000 lbs with my Ranger now matter what kind of hitch I had, that's too much. It's not mounted any different than it was originally, it was just bolted to the bottom of the frame, now it's bolted to the top.

My ranger did a fine job with that amount of weight, but to each his own...
