Seeing the groundhog thread reminded me I need to beef up my hitch receiver. I have a hitch carrier I plan on using to haul some additional gear when camping and a small trailer for a dirt bike.

I'm looking for some ideas on how others have done this. Pics are great if you have them. Thanks!

Search "re-inforced rear receiver hitch". Old post from Mechanic. Lots of details and pics. Looks primo, and complicated!

Thanks! Definitely looks complicated, but gives me some ideas.


If anyone else has any other solutions I'd like to see. Keep 'em coming.

The actual hitch tube is pretty weak for regular use or heavy use. I have lightly tweaked mine just using it for my spare tire mount, I bent it back and am still using it, but it is something that will need addressed later.

Consider cutting that tube out and replacing it with a stronger one and welding in better supports while your there. You can get hitch receivers at Harbor Freight or local farm supply stores for pretty cheap.
