Just finished my sled hitch

I just got finished making my sled hitch. Took me about and hour to make got the parts at napa for 64.00 and the metal from the local yard for 40.00 for a 10ft stick of 2'' tubeing 1/4 wall. I think im gona add some gussets on the bottom side. I couldnt see spending 300.00 on hitch. If some one wants one let me know.


Here it is:

Yup the shackle and the ring together were like 60 something the part number for the shackle and the ring is is 18128. I dont know if thats a napa number or just what my little napa has it listed under (im surprised my napa even has computers). On the tag it says 3" Tow ring w/bolts & 4-hole channel bracket. They had one with a 8 hole bracket but I thought it was to big.
