Thank you for the offer. I appreciate you and Buck offering. Did I mention someone stole my Rolex down there also. Anyone have a Rolex around they are not using??!

We had to air chisel one off of crb76's truck last year. It took about 30 minutes to get it off. It had the round key like the old chapman locks; and I feel confident in stating that it was VERY solid.

I thought those billet aluminum drop hitches were only rated for 10K lbs. though. Right Buck?

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

There must be good money in those.
Somebody stole them off the 43 Nor-Tech in the Poker Run village too.

Unbelievable!

Stolen hitch in FL no never, Locking pin is a must. I swear someone would catch someone in the act just once.

Pleasure meeting you Gino. Thanks for the shirts, I'll wear them with pride...
Anyone that doesn't know Gino, I can attest to him being as cool of a guy in person as he is on this site. Real class act.
Sorry for holding you up when we were lifing my boat.
