Anybody have a picture of their front mount receiver hitch? Did you have to remove anything to make it fit?
Harryarse said:I have a 96 with a front reciever which was on the truck when I bought it back in 98. It uses a strip of C-channel which bolts to the lower control arm cross member. The 2" reciever is them welded to the c-channel. Works great for a tow point but it hangs too low and reduces the approach angle. The reciever sticks out throught the top part of the factory skid plate, which had to be cut out. I'm going to ditch it when I get a new bumper. Sorry no pic's.
I was actually thinking of using it for a better tow/recovery point. I don't like the stock ones. I have seen the chevy tow hook write up you had, but was looking for other options that will not require changing the factory look or cutting of the valence.Dick Foster said:If you're getting the winch for wheeling. Hard mount it.
probably referring to theseDick Foster said:In that case, someone had a deal that mounted shackles where the tow hooks go. Looked to be pretty slick but you still had to get up under the truck to hook up and I was too lazy for that.
Hmm...it says it won't fit 95.5-97 Tacos, but I got similar shackle mounts I just bought from TiTRD, and they fit my '97 just fine. I only had to cut a small notch in the valance.grillmasterp said:
