I want a 2" receiver to carry 100lb feeder in the front of my Ford F150 so I can lower my tailgate. Anyone have something I can buy that easily replaces the tow hook on one side? If not, I may just take to a welder and have an extension tube bolted or welded on instead of tow hook.

eBay. Bought a few from there over the years. I'll see if I can find the guy I bought them from

Thanks,,,I looked into the first pic and it says they are not selling them anymore. I will look into the Harbor Freight suggestion. Do you have picture of how you mounted it on your hunting vehicle?

I need this same thing. Tried to find something on Google and found this. I'm posting simply for the humor/watching a train wreck factor. You have to fast-forward 'cause no human can listen to 6 minutes of this drivel. Be sure and check out the fine workmanship in Part 2. If he has a wife, she has my pity. Although, his approach to a project is scarily like mine. He bitches and whines more than me though, and that is hard to do.
