Blue Ox Baseplates on Silverado Help
I am setting up my 2013 Silverado 1500 to tow behind my motor home. I bought the Blue Ox BX1674 base plate. Unfortunately I can't get the baseplate to fit in the end of the frame rails. It is not just tight. It is physically taller than the opening between the bottom of the frame rail and the bottom of the weld nut on top of the rail.
I watched a number of youtube videos about this install. At least one of the videos said to add washers under the bolt head so the bolt wouldn't interfere with the baseplate. Did that. Didn't help.
So I am more than willing to trade BX1674 for BX1681 (the other "compatible" part), but I need to know if that part number will work.
Thanks in advance.
