I was looking in a magazine the other day and it got me to thinking when i saw a contraption that you could buy that bolts under your reese hitch to hold the ball hitch. I started to make my own when I was under the truck looking at the situation and low and behold the ball hitch will slide right into the main tubing ends of the reese hitch itself. It gets it up out the way and there is room for two, one on each side. Now I got my 1 7/8" ballhitch and 2" ballhitch right there under my truck. All I did was drill two holes in the main tubing part that line up with the holes in the ball hitchs so I can put some pins in them to keep them from sliding out. I know most everybody is pulling goosenecks and fifthwheels and so am I but I just thought that it was pretty neat how it worked out and thought I'd share it. It also saves my shines when I'm walking behind the truck when my boats not in tow!
