Nice job. I wouldn't have a truck camper without one.

I just put one (a Curt) on my ‘99 Dodge 3500 4x4.
Read lots of reviews claiming it was a huge ordeal, I have no idea what they’re all talking about.
It’s easy.
I’ve got a “4th Gen” ‘16 front bumper conversion on my “2nd Gen” Dodge, still fits fine.
Fringe benefit, now I have somewhere to tie off if I ever need to pull the truck.
Last time I had to remove the front bumper to pull it two blocks home when the injector pump died.
My main goal is same as everyone else, so I can mount a carrying rack.

I just put a Draw Tite front receiver on my 2019 Chevy 3500 HD for carrying an extra spare tire/ wheel. After seeing your setup, I think I'll buy the generator carrier for my little Honda....for local "off the grid" camping.

I think I saw those on Ben Hur.

Thanks for the write up, I may be doing something similar. I'd probably include some sort of stick to provide a visual indication of the new length.



Ben Hur LOL
