This is without question the best thread on the board.

I'd think there's an effect on the vehicle performance when the pitch is changed on the hitch prop. Hitch-pitch. Huh. I made a funny.

I'm with OnTheBay on this one. Counter rotating is the only way to go for that PSD

I had some problem with rim walking ( similar to chine walking) over 70mph so I went 4 blade. That helped but now I think I need external steering. Anyone know where I can get a Mayfair system for a Reese hitch? Also who make hoses long enough to run from the engine to the hitch?
To help extend the life of my hitch I disconnected the rear window washer and piped it to the hitch. Now I have a hitch shower!!

With the 4" raised dimension, you may need to go to a surface piercing prop, otherwise, I think blowout making turns could be a problem.
