Pasinbuy, my receiver does not attach to the rear cross member, which is not frame it's a cross member which is thinner material. My receiver actually bolts to the frame rails via 6 grade 8 bolts on either side, the way it should be done. What you call a "bumper ball" is the type seen on pickup trucks, which I have never seen on a YJ.
Six bolts on either side of his receiver, where is the room for the receiver? Here the cross member is not a part of the frame.
Yes the rear cross is PART of the frame, but is not in any way preferable to mount anything to. I can't take pictures of my set up as it's all up in the frame, kinda hard to take pictures of it without dropping the tank, and I am not doing that for some pics. I can tell you, again, that my hitch is BOLTED TO THE FRAME RAILS VIA 6 GRADE 8 BOLTS ON EITHER SIDE. Not sure how much more plain I can say that.
Now the crossmember is
a part of the frame and he starts yelling and screaming at me with caps and bold print. He is telling us the receiver is between the frame and gas tank and later states this to me. This guy does not even have a receiver on his rig. There is no way a Yj receiver first off has six bolts on both sides. Six bolts would have to be at least a foot plus up the frame. After looking at my rig. There is no way a receiver will fit between the frame and the gas tank. The tailpipe and the spring bolts stop that from happening. Plus there is very little room between the frame and the gas tank for anything to fit..
As far as ground clearance being a little below the cross member does nothing for ground clearance, just rear departure. Your ground clearance is measured at the lowest point of the vehicle which will always be the differential housing.
When I mention ground clearance this guy tries to tell us that ground clearance is measured at the differential housing. I guess all the people that lifted their rig are wrong and need to instead place 100 inch tires for proper ground clearance.
What is rear departure? What does he mean by the crossmember does nothing for ground clearance?
This guy xj93 insulted the heck out of me in this thread. Then stated it is his right. He lied about having a receiver, about it being attached with 6 grade 8s on both, sides, and about it being mounted between the frame and gas tank. This is why he could not post a picture.
I normally just let people like this slide but in this case he lied to all of us, then went on to yell and insult me. I will from now on watch anything xj93 has to state.
