In theory it should, but I don't believe I've ever seen anyone use it.

The only issue I see with that hitch is how far set back the receiver is.

its made for a rollpan, and exit where the plate is

Not really. The hitch would sit below the frame. Its not intended to go between the frame rails.

ya to me it looks like it bolts flush to the bottom of the frame rails, which on a non BL truck is behind the plate/rollpan but on a BL truck it should be just right.
