    Reciever hitch off \'84 K5

    75.00 plus ride.
    I got another bumper with a hitch and don't need this one.

    Does anyone know if this will work on an 85 K30?

    If the frame rails are the same width, then yes it will work /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I understand that. My thinking was that the spring perches are at different widths, so doesn't that mean the frame rails will also be a different widths?


    Maybe this is just my dumb-assed rational thinking /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    Also, if it's a "class 5" hitch then the hitch mounting goes in front of the rear spring hanger. Since K5s and K20/K30s have different rear springs and therefore different rear spring hanger locations then it won't fit without modification.

    I don't know about the rest of the stuff. I know the gusseting on the rear hanger is different too which can pose a problem.

    I think two people need to do some measuring, eh?

    I have an 84 K5 and when I removed the hitch, we tried to install it on my neighbor's 87 K30... it didn't work. Now that's not to say it couldn't be made to work, but it would take modification.
