I wanted to put a hitch on the back of my SD so that I could install the external tire carrier. Both are made by Orbital which is about an hour away northwest from me. After calling and talking to Jim Button I drove up to their facility. Jim gave me the 10 dollar tour and I came home with my DIY kit. But after I got home and climbed under the egg I saw that a previous owner had welded scissor jacks within 3/4 of an inch from the rear bumper and the mounting arms of the hitch were right smack dab in the middle.
I called Larry Gamble at Little House and described my issue and he gave me a price that I could afford. Three days later and another one hour trip south this time to Larry's garage. Work started and two hours later I was on my way back home all fixed up. The removal of the old jacks were a bear as the welder had used the hard metal stick rods. On one piece of cut metal I told Larry just to leave it and I would paint
over it. Larry said no that it would not look good. So between grinders,punches,portable bandsaw and oscillating blades he managed to get the welded metal off. Kudos to Larry who wanted it to be right and not look sloppy.
Now I can hang my cargo carrier and a tire that is not stuck on the back of the FG wall. (we tightned the nut back on the cut off rod and the internal bolt head was free-spinning so that doesn't speak well for the attachment internally on the back of the egg wall IMO).
