Default Customized the ATV Receiver Hitch

Had a standard receiver hitch insert on the back of the mule to pull the quad-trailer. Wanted the ball closer to the axel and a couple inches higher, so instead of building a new one, I decided to take the cutting torch to the current one, heat it cherry red, and turn the 45 degree angles into 90 degree ones. MAN!!!!.....bending it was no joke! Welded the ball into place, and added a steel ring to use as a tie-down point as well as a tow hook. Hit her with some Krylon and she’s back on the Mule.
