trailer hitch install write up

I am about to go install my trailer hitch. I was going to take pictures along the way so I could make a write up if anyone was interested.

So if you think the write up is a good idea, let me know

Why do you need a how to on something that comes with instructions and is easy as bolting a wheel on?

Now if you were modifying it to fit a Body lift or something cool then I could see it.

That sounds great. I dont see why there shouldn't be a writeup for trailer hitch installation. It would benefit everyone.

Go for it!

Do it! There's always that case of guys getting hitches from friends/ebay/junkyard/etc without instructions. Great idea man.
