loaded up with a trailer and bed full of concrete

Nice work. Did the truck pull it all fine? Did you notice it lagging around?

I do have a BL. the hitch has been cut and raised. with a stock bumper it sat just below it. and it sucked back a bit when it was cut and rewelded. sits almost flush with the bottom of the roll pan.

it wasn't terrible. i definitely knew i had something behind me though. lol

braking was a bit sketchy. but i only drove halfway across town on surface streets to the dump. it was pretty early so traffic was light.

cool. I have a rollpan and BL too and just bit the bullet and ordered the Street Scene hidden hitch, that will not be hidden on my truck. It should sit exactly like yours right out of the box

its a good thing you didnt try to get the SS hitch. You still might not have it. Mines on backorder, they said it would be 3 weeks, its been 3 weeks, and I just found out today it's going to be another month. I'm PISSED OFF.
