finally installed my hitch!

purchased hitch from squeek daddy

sanded/wire wheel to get all the rust off (almost 3 hours worth), painted w/ rustoleum (sp?) rust converter 2x. then coated in rubberized undercoating 3x. then painted black paint 3x. pulled the orig bracket from the bumper and replaced- no sweat (alot faster than removal off the 92!). whats your thoughts? or does anyone have something to compare with? THANKS!
