Question Susp. blocks & weight racks?

Are there any people out there who sell this stuff? I've seen some guys where they rig it up to their plow frame, but I don't have one. My welding skills are minimal.

I make the blocks for blackwidow diesel, I made a weight rack to for my truck but it was a pain in the ***. Alldiesels used a front mount reese hitch for his and made a custom weight for it witch would have been fairly easy to do. Im a big tightass so i made my own for about 90 dollars and a lot of cussing

Ok. So now where would I go to get a front mount Reese hitch? Should I try to find some on here? Or should I just go to my local Tractor supply or RV/camper store

I would like to see some pics when your done. If you made a few of them I'm sure they would sell. I know I'd be interested.

I think the curb weight is around 6,700 lbs. So I'm guessing with me in it and some fuel, were lookin' at 7,000 or so.

500 pounds isnt enough for your truck then, if there is any welding shops close i woul tell them what you want and they could probably make you one.
