I think you're picturing the eye bolts installed upwards? But if you install them so they are under to bumper then it should look O.K.:dunno:SlaveToTheNeedl said:MOJO,
Doesn't that end up looking like HELL or is there a way to keep it looking good?
Agreed.:thumbup: I was just about to say that.SlaveToTheNeedl said:Why install a hitch to pull a 700 pound ski? Seems a big waste of money that I can put towards my Plasma TV. I understand the eye bolts go UNDER the bumper but the nuts and threaded stud will be seen up top. I only gotta find some black soft plastic covers to strech over them and that would do the trick!
I wouldn't use one of those because if the ball comes loose and falls off then your safety chains will as well.Muddskipper said:they make a ring that goes under the ball and has two attachments for the saftey chains
Go to a local fishing/ sporting goods store or a trailor store, they should have them.
Yeah, get a hitch. I wouldn't trust the bumper to hold much weight or abuse. I've seen lots of trucks that have bent bumpers because they don't have a Reese hitch. A hitch would be a lot cheaper than a new bumper.HUTCHSTACo said:buy a real hitch... cheap... and safety first bro
Get some Acorn Nuts to mount on Top, then put another nut underneath if you have too much thread on the eye bolts. Still a lump on top the bumper, but it would look slighlty better.SlaveToTheNeedl said:I understand the eye bolts go UNDER the bumper but the nuts and threaded stud will be seen up top.
