Raise hitch into position and secure using the bolts removed in Step 2.
Using the hitch as a template, mark the position of the middle hole on the passenger side frame rail. (Confirm the alignment on the driver side frame rail at this time.) (NO PIC)
Remove the hitch and drill a 1/2 hole in the passenger side frame rail at the marked location. NOTE: Use safety googles, metal will be flying. Also be careful once the bit goes through and bites. I got a nasty cut - it'll leave a scar. (NO PIC)
Enlarge the middle holes in the frame rails using a rotary tool with a carbide bit to allow insertion of the 7/16" carriage bolt and the rectangular spacer. Hole is 1/2" x 1.13"
Fishwire a 7/16" carriage bolt and a rectangular spacer into each of the forward holes in the frame rail.
2 springy wires are included. They thread onto the carriage bolts
Forward hole with bolt inserted
Reverse fishwire a 7/16" carriage bolt and rectangular spacer into each of the middle modified holes.
Raise the hitch into position over the 7/16" bolts. Secure the hitch by starting the 12mm bolts. Tighten the bolts until there is about 1/2" between the hitch mounting plate and the frame rail on each side. Slide a 'U' shaped spacer (no picture) in between the hitch mounting plate and frame rail on each side. Tighten 12mm bolts slowly ensuring spacers stay in place.
Position a square spacer between the hitch mounting plate and frame rail at the middle modified hole aligned with the 7/16" carriage bolt. Secure with a 7/16" hex nut.
Hard to see in this picture from underneath looking up
Modify the rear hole in the serpentine belt cover so that the smaller 7/16" washer fits inside the hole. Use the large diameter 7/16" flat washer to retain the cover and secure with a 7/16" hex flange nut. (NO PIC
Torque all 7/16" fasteners to 50ft-lbs. Torque all 12mm fasteners to 62ft-lbs.
Job done. Complete!
The question has been asked before will it work with a custom center exhaust. In my case YES it will work with a Genius Exhaust. I have a my own tip on mine which I will have to make some very slight adjustments to.
