Best bet to find a new receiver hitch somewhere around BR today?


I know this is a hell of a stretch, but I need to find a class V receiver hitch for a 1994 k1500 today.

I'm about to start blowing the phone up. Any suggestions on who I should call other than the big box stores?

May be tough on Sunday. Unfortunatly Lowes and Depot may be your only options.

Maybe try sears. They have a fairly big tool dept. worth a shot.

No I don't need it installed. I just need to get my hands on one.

I'll call em

I may try to track down a ranch hand back bumper and weld a receiver on it. Just gotta see what I can get my hands on with such short notice.

Hopefully my frame isn't bent

If it is, time to extend the frame and make a flat bed.

A flatbed would be appropriate for him.

Class 5 is going to be tough. I had to order mine from the ford dealership. They only had 4s.

Long hitch+ asspile of tongue weight on hitch rated for 400=mega bracket destruction. It's all bent up where it bolts to the frame.
