for ppl who used a ranger hitch....you think one of the ones that mounts to the side of the frame will work?

Yep Thats the kind I used. If you have a tranny cooler it will rub against the rubber hose thats all.

Yeah, its factory. I just don't want to bolt one on (if thats the one you have) just because I wouldn't have the patience to fiddle with those bolts when i cant see them in the center of the frame lol

^^^don't let that price fool ya, with a bit of shopping around, I got mine for $180. Still probably more than you want to pay though. I was just thinking it might work for those guys that want to bolt one in, if it's the same as the Hidden Hitch one.

It's not a Ranger, but it may give you some ideas.
For my Sport Trac, I found a hidden style hitch for a Super Duty that was on sale for $50 at bi-mart. I looked around behind the bumper and decided it could be cut down to width, flipped upside down and bolted to the holes where the tow hooks were. I took it to a metal fab guy and and asked if he could do, and he said no problem. A few hours and $80 later, this is what I got.
