    Will a receiver hitch from a \'75 Jimmy fit my \'72 Blazer?

    Hi again,

    I can get a pretty good deal on a used trailer hitch from a 1975 Jimmy and I wanted to know if this thing would fit onto my '72 Blazer? Can it be made to fit if not? Apparenty it has the equilizer bars to help support my travel trailer.
    Thanks again for the input.

    it wont fit. BUT!!!! if you put some 2" angle iron on the outside of your frame it will bolt to that and tow just fine. The front bolt by the springs youll have to trim the angle iron down. thats a a pain in the a$$. its redneck but it works
