    Will a '90 suburban hitch mount up to a '83 K5 or a 73k20?

    Ok the K5, You might have a problem with the hitch hitting the gas tank skid.

    I tried taking a 84 suburban hitch and putting on my 82 blazer, the bolt holes are all the same on all the trucks, but for some reason, my skid plate was in the way. The 2wd sub it came off of had no skid plate.
    For that truck, it should go asumming there is not a tall aftermarket bumper on it.

    Like I mentioned on the other forum, I tried bolting a sub hitch up to my GMC, but I quickly realized that the sub had an upwards bend in the frame that the pickup didn't. You could make it work by cutting off that extra bend / welding it back on level with the other ones, but otherwise I wouldn't bother trying. And like I thought, you can bolt it up to the Blazer, but the skid plate will be in the way :)
