    ....My hitch sets 3-4" below my stock bumper....It allows me to use my adjustable hitch up to about 8" of drop....I usually end up at about 7"...A 12"-14" drop is going to cost a pretty penney...Can you return your 10"???

    ....My hitch also makes a good skid plate...:D

    ..My setup...

    Is that a rollback pic from when the seal blown? If so you didnt coat your underbody like mine did :)

    Yeah hitch is actually higher than the stock bumper ball would be. I almost did a set up like you but i dont want to have it under there. Plus the new bumper has it build in

    Here's the trailer I pull. It's a 1967 that we picked up just for hunting and did a SOA with longer spring hangers so we could get it into some of our favorite spots. A weight distribution hitch is next on the list.

    Here is my 05 Sport Trac pulling my 05 Interstate Cargo 6x14 trailer. The picture is taken in Wyoming during a 3 hour stop after a huge wreck, during our move to Kentucky.
    I bought the trailer primarily to move, and if I get another bike. That's my wife's Jetta behind me.
