anti rattle?

Does anyone have any ideas for a cheap anti rattle hitch device that can fin in a confined space? the area between the hitch and the bumper cover on a zj is minimal. i really dont want to trim it lol.

Then use a bolt to tighten it against the side oh the hitch. Can be done with either the hitch pin hole or by drilling new holes. I like new holes, if the bolt comes loose, the pin is still there. In some cases there are already two different sized holes in the reciever.

Weld a nut to the inside of the reciever. Then use a bolt and tighten it down. It will pull any slop out.

Hopefully you can make sense of my posts. Jf needs to get this app problem solved.

I just reinstalled it, but now there are new problems! Might just find a new forum.

A few options you can buy cheap...

I like the Curt device better...for my truck i just used a few wraps of true rubber tape on the receiver to make it fit snug and eliminate rattle noises

Hitch stabilizer: no wobble, anti rattle device for hitch accessories
