So bought this used 96 GMC long box, extended cab 4x4 K2500 from a dealer, and the fellow that had it had a sliding fifth wheel hitch in it at one point, but does not appear he followed any directions, rails on a used hitch I picked up do match for the shape and holes he drilled, but does not sit according to Hijacker instructions, and he only had one bolt per bracket, although he did use four brackets, maybe to compensate for it.
Anyway thought I would post pics to show how it sits now, not bolted in, I just placed the bolts in, had to redrill two holes on one side as the hitch was not sitting square at all.
Tried to show how it sits, how in forward position it is a bit ahead of axle, other picture is second position to show it is the middle of axle, it would appear if the rails had been put in at the spacing Hijacker states, it would only ever come to the middle of the axle at most, maybe why the fellow set it further up.
The other thing he did is the spring loaded pins that drop down into the slide he drilled right through the bottom of the box bed, I don't think that was supposed to be done.
Any feedback on this set up?
I had told one poster here I would post pics for him to see.
First to show hitch sitting in place, not bolted.
Second showing the forward most position.
Third showing second setting from front most position.
Showing where bolts come through, close to holes he drilled and factory frame holes, no brackets attached yet.
Tried to show how far it is from back of box, not what is called for.
