front hitch on a 99 2wd

thought about this for months and finally just went ahead and did it.....

ill post pictures later like tomorrow when its sunny

did this build at 830pm about week ago .....

looks sweet!!!!!!

so heres what i did briefly

got a reese hitch off a f-350
cut it to fit on the inside of the frame in the front of the truck
lined it up to fit inside the hole
welded it in place
added longer bolts and spacers for trans radiator.



future project is to add a classic chevy spring lisens plate holder to cover up the square and some lvl 2 ford ranger tow hooks.

Man, I'd be so pissed if I put that on my own truck, and then proceeded to smash my leg into that damn hitch while walking around the truck
