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!

Had to clean out the garage this year, not enough space for my new-to-me GL1500.
After (disposing of) a few Astros in my past I accumulated a few spacesaver tires.
I got 2 stacked under the rear even with a class 2 hitch that I made.
Fits just like your fullsize tire, barely noticeable from the rear.
That is good to know. Thanks, Jim
ps a pic of that would be cool.
