My coach has the typical full length stone guard in the back.It's mounted a couple of feet or more forward of the rear bumper. It's susceptible to getting caught under the hitch on inclines or drop offs. Is there anything magic about where they are mounted? I was considering moving it further back so it would be able to pivot out of the way of the the hitch is it bottomed out.


TIA!

We mounted our Ultra Guard about 1" behind the cross bar for the receiver hitch. The top of the bar is even with the bottom of the tube. I also had to make a cutout for the generator exhaust pipe.

I drilled a hole in each frame rail and installed a closed loop I bolt. The bolts are installed with the hole at a right angle to the ground. (Looking down the frame rail you can look through the hole in the I bolt).

I put 2 more I bolts vertically in the angle iron on the guard the same distance apart as those in the frame rails. I turned these at right angles to the ones in the frame rails. (Looking down the frame rail you can't see the holes of the ones in the angle iron).

Then I took 2 threaded quick links, looped them on each side through the frame mounted I bolt and the guard mounted I bolt and tightened them. The guard can pivot on the link to go over large obstructions or down the driveway. It's heavy enough that it doesn't sail as we drive down the road.

One note of caution. Be sure you have 4" between the bottom of the guard and the ground on a level surface. If it's closer to the ground it'll brush the pavement every time you go over a bump and spray gravel on the front of your toad.
