    Here are a few pics of my new ebling. I received it unassembled so I thought I would take a few pics of all the parts so others know what to expect when they have it shipped to them. I'm gonna have to bust out the camera for anymore pics as these cell phone pics are a little fuzzy.

    Looks Good! Let us know how the install goes and how many beers it takes.


    I suggest getting an Evo or other good smart phone with a good camera. My Evo takes perfect pictures.

    Looks nice! I'm jealous...

    I would guess that the Ebling bracket needs to go where your factory hitch is, therefor they build their brackets and a new hitch all at the same time...

    It looks like the lighter duty one is the one he removed from his truck to install the new Ebling one. Looks like it is a little bit heavier duty!!!

    One hitch will be the old one removed from his truck, and then the new Ebling hitch that will replace it.

    Can you still haul a trailer with the new ebling hitch?

    Yes you can still pull a trailer, the hitches are V5 rated from Ebling.

    The bigger hitch is the Ebling one, I took a pic of it next to the factory one to show the difference. The ebling is obviously a little more stout.

    I allready have the plow assembled and the hitch installed. The plow assembly was pretty straight forward, although I did spend a little extra time with the wiring as I like to try to keep any wiring nice and neat. The hitch was also very straight forward using existing holes in the frame. The only drilling required was on the two side support brackets for the hitch. These brackets are bolted to the hitch so your not drilling on the actual hitch itself.

    It's an amazing thing, a trailer hitch that can pull a trailer. :nod: :p

    Far stronger than OEM.

    how is everyone mounting these controllers to their seats? The blizzard shoe box's have their velcro straps but these have nothing. Any pointers for mounting?
