    I remember someone made and was selling a 2" receiver that would fit into the ultra mount truck frame brackets. Can someone post the link or point me in the right direction.

    Jim, I'm assuming he means a 2" receiver type trailer hitch

    one 2" trailer reciver hitch in the center of the truck is what we are talking about here right?

    It would take the place of one of your ultra mount recivers. I was thinking of getting 2 of them one for each front plow reciver mount and use them to mount a brush guard for my tuck.

    I have actully thought about doing that before. Not with 2" recivers, but fabbing up a removable brush guard that locks into the truck mount.

    Never carried it out though.

    That's what I was imagining, so you could add a winch or move trailers around easier.

    I thought about the winch idea but was worried about bending the mount as it is made for pushing not pulling. Just a thought.

    I think you would be save moving a trailer with it. But a winch puts a tone of pulling force on that. Not sure I would trust that

    The trailer idea I think would be fine, but I would be leery about the winch.

    Here's the installation instructions for a DrawTight 88-98 OBS front hitch. It essentailly mounts where the tow hooks do and is rated for 500 lbs tongue weight and a 9,000 lb winch line pull.

    It would seem that the UltraMount could be modified to handle that with a little work, at least for straight pulls. I don't think I'd trust it to pull off center however.

    Just got off your and Buyers websites. This part number shows as more than $80. And at Buyers website this part number shows as a replacement plow receiver.

    I though what was asked about was a 2" trailer hitch receiver that would mount up to the bumper brackets of a ultramount plow.

    I've been toying with this idea for a couple years now. My plan was to obtain two Side Plate A's (Part number 40278) this is the plate that is used in the Unimount to Ultramount conversion kit. Bolt a receiver between them. Have even though of obtaining one plate duplicating it without all the extra mounting holes and excess steel and welding them to the end of a receiver.

    Has no one done this yet, really???

    I've had the same thoughts. I actually mocked up some brackets out of cardboard but never took it any further.

    Hard to believe but apparently true (unless someone has done it but just isn't sharing).
