I'd help you out if you had access to a welder. I left mine in Texas, but I am in the Evansville, IN area currently.

I have been thinking about doing this when I lift my bumper, is it a good idea to cut the hitch and re-weld? Will it still hold as much as it did before? I am assuming you are talking about lifting it because you put on a body lift right?

id probably do it for 75-100 as long as it doesnt require any material, which it shouldnt. I will need a few hours with it to get it done properly.

Your going to need an exhaust hanger too, you have to cut the stock ones off to remove the stock muffler.
