Finally got a hitch...salvage yard score

During my weekly trip to the salvage yard (lately anyway) found a freshly put in the yard smashed '08 supercab 4x2 XLT Ranger. Somebody had hit a pole or something right off the front right fender, looked REAL bad...front suspension all ripped out, airbags deployed, just a mess.

Anyway, it happened to have a nice recent model Hidden Hitch on it so I unbolted it and took it off. Easy since the bed was gone. I was worried about it being bent but I didn't see any rear frame damage on the wreck so I compared it to a few more wrecked rangers around it. Seemed to line right up so I gave $40 for it and it's home. It's in decent shape but I'm going to sand it all down a bit and give it a fresh coat of primer and black paint. Gotta go to Fastenal tomorrow to get some good grade 8 bolts, nuts, and lock washers. I did get the spacers and the hardware from to the donor truck but just like using new hardware for my stuff....saved me $100 at least off the cost of new one. I'll get pics once it's done.
