Build Your Own Hitch

Ever wanted to just throw your dirt bikes, mini chopper, or favorite weekend toy in the bed of your mini-truck and take off for some fun? We know; either your toy is too big for the bed, or like most of us, you have cut a big hole in your bed floor so that your neighbors won't ask for your help moving their junk. Hopefully, you cut the hole out for clearance and the neighbor thing is a side benefit. With this fat hole in your bed, you have no room to carry any of your fun stuff. So what now?
We, too, were faced with this dilemma, so we put together a little solution with the help of Mac's Springs and Suspension Dimension. We decided to build a hidden hitch that would fit perfectly behind our license plate location in the roll pan. Using Mac's Spring's hitch draw bar, the crew at Suspension Dimension grabbed a piece of 2x3-inch box tubing and went to work. After a bunch of measuring and double-checking, some cutting, and, of course, some welding, we were well on our way to towing like a champ - maybe not a champ, but our mini would now be able to haul more than before. Follow along as we give our mini a custom hidden hitch that will enable us to finally take some toys along for the ride. For more information, contact the companies listed in the source box.
