Would this be classified as an upgrade. I think the ball was originally mounted directly to the bumper and that's when the bumper rubs occurred. Each to his own. Bring on the brews.

I could agree if the plate had huge dents in it[trailer hitch to high], never seen a bumper mounted ball that did not have a mangled plate to go with it.

At least it is at the right height for busting shins. If the ball was in the original mounting hole, you would never get to experience the pain.

Ayup. We have plenty of farmer folk that use that kind of setup around the yard. Matter of fact, that looks a lot like my garden tractor setup.
