i have searched thru about 200 results and cant seem to find it. the one i am looking for is some guy on here flipped the rear reciever hitch on his truck for a better departure angle and had the hitch mount coming out of where the liscense plate mount is.

I did not see that thread................but I just did that same thing to mine...........I simply took the torch and cut through the welds holding the two end plates to the square hitch body...........then i bolted the end plates to the frame in their correct position and then put the middle body part up their and mocked / tack welded it in the correct position.......the took the whole thing back off the truck and finished welding it :)

I don't know..........stock it bolts to the bottom of the frame..........I suppose since the frame is not boxed at that point it could be flipped so it sat on top of the frame.........It may work.......try it!!!

I cut mine up because i was using a custom bumper and i needed to get it in just the right position :)

ok then mark out where you need the hole and run it down to the local exhaust shop and have them cut it with their torch.......they should do it pretty cheap for you

i didn't have to cut my recever hitch at all... mine i just undid the 3 bolts on each side the the bar bolts to the side pieces and fliped the bar over (leaving the pieces that attach to the frame on) and bolted it back on. lined up perfict. still haven't cut my bumper yet, thought about just selling it and running without the bumper untill a custom rear one made.

sorry if this makes no since. hard to explain. i can get pics tomorrow if you want.
