Weld 2" receiver tube to radiator skid plate.
I'm pretty sure that a front receiver hitch would use the same bolts as my radiator skid. I'd like to have a front spot for moving trailers and a recovery point would be nice as well.
I think that I could weld a 2" receiver tube to my radiator skid and get a front receiver without losing much ground clearance.
I'm curious if anyone has tried this. The Hefty skid is 3/16" thick, so it should be plenty strong enough. I've found 2" receiver tubes that should work on Ebay, but they would probably need to be cut to mate cleanly.
