Two weeks ago I received my Baseplate brackts from Blue Ox for my 2007 GMC 4x4 Pickup. There are 2 brackets which lay in the U shaped frame rail (replacing the towing hooks) and each are held in place by two bolts . The bolts go through the frame rail on one side, guide tubes in the bracket, and exits a hole in the other side of the frame rail. I don't think the bracket could ever be captured in such a way that it would be tight. Mine have about .125 inch to .25 inch of up/down play in them. I was wondering if anybody on the forum had a similar installation and if their brackets are loose in a like fashion?
