    While I was climbing around the bone yard today looking for a new rear brakeline (I tore the old one off wheeling... second time its happened)I saw a class III redciever hitch mounted under a 80's burban. My ? is, I have a 80 GMC JImmy and was wondering if teh hitch would fit. do the bolt holes line up or would I have to drill new ones?

    It should bolt right up - My Hidden Hitch book says the same number for Blazer and Burb

    I have a class 3 Hidden Hitch and had to drill the 2 front holes to mount it. You can make a threader out of a strand of copper wire. Just wrap it around the bolt threads and leave about 12" or so. Then thread the end down through the bolt hole and pull the bolt on through. Otherwise, you'll have to drop the tank to get to the back holes.
