I was thinking about another hitch for my truck to..
But your ballz were to little.. LMAO.

Kidding.. but your luck and mine are about the same.. Some one swiped my digital cam at the FPC party, and "borrowed" one of my fenders.

Gino,

Give me a call at the store. I'll ship you a new one at cost. You've been through enough hell in the last year or two, I feel like that's the least someone on here could do.

The entertainment I get from your stories is worth it IMO.

Try the Diversi-tech hitch. It has the same adjustable feature, but with a built-in locking pins.

Some a-hole stole my buddy's steering rams off his skater down there too. Ruined his week...

Gino,
That sucks, and it seems when the worlds come to KW, out come the thieves!

Gino I have an extra triple ball with a 6 to 8 inch drop you can have for free, I am sure with the trucks you have you will need more than that amount of drop.

Most locking pins are not worth sh!t anyway. A 4 lb hammer and three good hits and they break right off. I had one where I lost the key/ didn't have it with me so I called the manufacturer, guy laughed and said to hit it with a hammer. He was right it popped right off.

But any lock will stop the casual thief just walking by.
