Default drop hitch for hummer

What you will need:
1.1 truck shock top and bottom
2.exacto knife
3.ball joint
4.drill

Step 1
Get a drill bit and drill out the small square on the back of the hummer Bumper

Step 2 get the shock

Step 3
Bend the male piece of the shock up like this.(you will needto trim it later on)

Step 4
Trim the female down alittle bit

Step 5
If you are using a ball that has a small screw piece you will need to trim it down abit.

Step 6
Trim down the male piece so it will fit nicely in it.

Step 7
Then take the female piece and screw it on the back of the bumper.

Step 8
Now put in your ball hitch on.

Step 8
Slide in the male to the female if you want put some glue in for a permanant or none for a removable hitch.

Step 8
Now i am using a model trailer.make a small hole in the front of the hitch and put a ball adapter on.You will need to put a screw in the adapter then glue it in and cut off the flat head on the screw and screw it in the hole you made on the trailer.then glue.

There you are a small drop hitch that is very easy to use

This is a creative hitch !! Very good, but I wouldnt use the shocks, just becsuse there kinda bulky, and the "hitches" may start to bend more, and break off, also, if you go over a bump, then the hitch will come apart, and your trailor will come off the trucks hitch.

I never said glue it ?? What are you talking about ?? I said that the trailor will come off, if your TRUCK goes over a small scale HILL, or a large BUMP, the trailor might hitch on the trailor or tuck might come loose with the other hitch.
