    I called a couple of hitch dealerships and they said there are no available front mounted hitch for the 80s LC. Does anybody knows where I can get one? I might have to build one if I can't find one. Thanks.. :)

    If you follow that link you will find that the receiver can be mounted on the bottom side of the frame rails. This is the lowest point of the ARB bar. The only requirement of the bike rack or other accessory is that it must clear the front of the ARB.
