    Yes, I have. The weld patch fits like crap, the hole centers are too big and if you didn't get it beat down to the frame rail sufficiently the holes won't line up. You may need to make the holes a little bigger as the bolt is likely rubbing on the edge of the plate.

    That happened to me personally and that's why I don't usually suggest the weld patch (but I do sell it to those that want it).

    Make sure you get the bolt on brace as well. I sell it as does ORD.
