I got bored yesterday so my dad and I decided to start fabbing my own version of the backbone system. i haven't actually put a plate on yet...........or bought/made one for that matter, but anyways, i think it should be pretty strong when its all finished. i started out by picking up 2) 4" drop receivers, i know thats not the right word but i'm having a brain fart.......but you get my drift, and bolted them upside down into the square tubing that alot of the guys are using to mount tow shackles, and then cut slots in the bumper for them to come through, once i get the plate i'll weld it to the hitches and then should be good to go. heres some pics my wife says i use too many run-ons so sorry, haha
