I dont think its the right hitch because the PO ground notched the bumper so it will clear a reciver, but it seems like it in to far. On top of that it dosent look right in my opion.

I don't think on my big one I have a skid plate but on the BII I couldn't get the polts out of the back by the bumper so I just undid the frontones and kinda pulled it back as far as I could.
I wouldn't look forward to tasking that 32 gallon monster out of the big truck
23 gallon was enough

I'll tell you without even seeing it what he did and chances are it is the right one. When you get the kit people forget to put the shim packs in between the frame paltes and the frame. Did that kinda work for a few years

I have a Kodiak woodstove in what we call the computer room which use to be the garage at some point. But in the living room is a fullsized fireplace that doesn't have an incert in it but thick glass doors to close it off and a radiator that goes accross the top of the firebox so you don't need a big fire to heat it up and it does work rather well, that and sealing fans through out the house to push the air down.

and the worst part is I filled it up this morning on the way to work. so if I drop the tank tommorrow it will have about 28 gallons in it.

cool, that will save me some time and money then, i guess I'll just take a grinder to the bumper and make the notch a little bigger so I can fit one in there.

what i was thinking anout doing is, amkeing a frame out of 2x4's to support the skid plat, then put 2 floor jacks under it. unbolt the skid plate and raise the truck off of the tank with a 2 post lift.

Agreed. If we figure that a gallon of gas is the same as a gallon of water, Drunk Dave will be looking at 230 lbs. of fuel weight alone, so figure another 50 or so for the tank. Either way, not my idea of fun.
