The factory hitch is tied into the bumper for support. Believe it or not I have not had a problem dragging my 12-13k trailer all over the country with it. I do use a weight distributing hitch.
theBeen busy getting the truck ready for FC '22. BudBuilt rock sliders, BudBuild skids, Warn 10k winch, ARB recovery points, lifted and aligned, new transfer case switch for 4lo, new clock spring in the steering wheel. I have 2 more skids (transfer case and gas tank skids) on express delivery from Bud arriving tomorrow that I'll install on Thursday and I'll head up to FC Friday morning. Looking forward to wheeling with you guys.

Thanks @TRDdrew. I'm glad I did the work myself, it's been a great way to learn about the truck. And having seen more of the the Cove trails last June, I had a good idea of what type of build I wanted on this truck- for this event and other upcoming trips. I'm pretty stoked with how it's turned out- especially after I get the remaining skids in on Thursday. See you all up there.
Yeah, I have the exact same problem.Shuffling the garage around to make best use of this double-wide lift that was installed this week.
Still needs some adjustments on the linkages, but it's safe to use for now. The controls are a bit finicky until it gets sorted out.
Production was moved back to USA during pandemic. Now made in Ohio.
