The receiver hitch is custom built with the exception of the ball and tongue. As opposed to the aftermarket hitches that bolt up, John welded plates directly to the framerails. He used 2x3-inch boxed steel to mount the rear portion of the bed. Not only does this provide good mounting brackets, it also significantly strengthens the floor of the bed. The exhaust exits neatly between the hitch and the bed floor.
