All trucks "level out" differently...no 2 are the same. As far the threaded block...I don't know, but if the bolt is touching the key at all I think you'll be fine.

If he garanteed his work I might thing about it. Investing in something that expensive really leans on how many times I get to use it a year. It wouldn't be worth it to me to use it in springfield twice but if there were say 5 or more a year I might could manage.
I should have reinstalled my stock keys the other day when I had an alignment. I wanted to keep them in though b/c I'm thinking about that Cognito leveling kit in a little while. Taking my bolts completely out won't work for me I don't believe b/c the adjustments aren't equal. My drivers side has about two nuts worth of thread showing and the passenger side has at least 4---It's almost let all the way down. With the bolts out there isn't any way the threaded block can fall out is it? If it can happen it will happen to me.
You don't think mr. hillbilly inspector will say something about the adjustment bolts in that pullin' hitch not being 1" each do ya' ?
there are more pulls in the area. hopkinsville and dickson will have some as well.

taking the t-bar bolts out IS A MUST!! or at least lower them completely down. if you plan on pulling with the green keys, you may as well cut your tie-rods off with a torch....sleeves wont matter either, they will still break at the knuckle. pics in garage.

no, the threaded block will NOT fall out. it sits on the crossmember. only way for it to fall out, is to break in half, or rip through the crossmember.

me too. if it werent for bad luck, i wouldnt have any luck at all.

he shouldnt, there are 2 half (1/2") inch bolts. two halfs make a whole...

I guess if I want to do any good I'll have to get the keys swapped out and get ANOTHER alignment I sure don't want that in the pic to happen . You said that was a buddies truck and by the picture it seems like it's lifted and has some big knobbies on it. I hope for my sake that was a major contributing factor to the breakage.
I guess if I can't get that done(I'll have to do it just hours before the pull) I'll do the best I can; maybe it will do as good as the guys that don't even turn theirs down.
If the guy from underwood tire wants to bring an extra hitch I may end up getting it from him. It's a little harder to resist a purchase when it's in your hand.

Are those spring clamps pretty much the same as the ones in MYOJUNK's garage?

here they are

I am going to try and come watch you guys, but I don't think that I will be pulling this time. I am going 4wheeler riding with some buddies above Nashville that weekend and was going to come up early just to give you guys some support.

That ought to work. probably tear my hitch up in the top holes like that . Come on over and say hi. You'll see us, we'll most likely be under one of the trucks doing something. We'll see ya'

On another note I did make an appointment to get the stock keys reinstalled friday morning. Surely I can get my 2" of lift I have now with the stock keys. I have had mixed luck with trucks in the past is the reason I bought them in the first place. Guess I'll use my 3" rise reciever with the 1" shackle if noone brings anything else.

well i got it all "did-up" today. heres a few pics. pretty similar to durabeast.









it comes out just a shade under the rear step of the bumper. mine measures 18 inches to the reciever, this adds about 5 3/4 inches or so. so if any of yall's recievers is higher (measured from the ground), it may have to be lowered down to work on yalls junk. i'll bring a few extra bolts and whatnot, just in case.

also, the "plug" in the bumper will have to be taken out. theres a 5/8's bolt to drop down through the hole where a ball would bolt up to. that part is also removeable, so if the inspectors where to raise hell about it being connected to the bumper. although without it, i do not believe the reciever hitch will survive very long..

when i put my stock keys back in, i was just a shade over the 2 inch mark. i think i have a flat washer under one t-bar bolt, and 2 flat washers on the other to acheive my desired ride height. then take em all the way out and through em in the floorboard for the pull.
