heres the hitch

Here it what the result looks like borrowed my buddies who runs an 08 cummins and hold up for his truck. i dropped the sled in 2nd place but got DQ'ed cause of the hitch. only needed another 2.5 feet to take first! im thinking she woulda pulled another 2 ft and some change.

Those look like washers on the bolts? What held it together? The hitch just looks weak to me.

same bolts and washers that hold a normal pinnacle or whatever hitch you want on the plate. problem was it was slotted down the channel so it was adjustable but ripped the steel at the bottom where it wasnt torched out.

New hitch

Heres what I came up with to try to get the hitch as close to the back of the truck as possible while still making it adjustable. It has been working great so far just need to throw a coat of paint on her.

Yessir I don't really understand it either but she is starting to slip in 5th and 6th. but as far as pulling in the first three, and the torque converter are good to go!
