Definately one of the nicest ones I have seen. One? How many weights can you put on there? Or did you design it that long cause you only wanted that many weights?

my light weight rig comes in around 7000 lbs with no weights
weight bracket is 83.1lbs and my suit case weights are 105/ weight I could use another 2 weights or so but Ive just got 6 of them for now. Kubota weights are easier and cheaper to come by than the JD or IH ones around these parts figure that one out!

note* Im using my meyer snowplow bracket to hook the weight bracket to

WOW. It looks like I will have to weight in at 9000lbs next season and my truck only weights about 7400 with me in it.

Here is my setup... A little different than most of yours but its a full time track truck so it stays put when I am trailering it. I didn't have access to actual tractor weights but did have 1500lbs of lead in the shop. I built the weight box which is 8" tall, 12" deep and 34" wide and it can hold the whole 1500lbs (I have the lead poured into 2 1/2" square 1/16" wall tubing). Right now I can only use 750lbs of it but am hoping to fill it full in the near future!

Ok. What are you guys as a reciever? Do most of you just use like the front reciever hitch that is sold for our trucks? Or weld brackets to the frame? Gettin ready to make one and was not sure the best way or how everyone is mounting them.

Thanks, Travis

I have done it both ways, both work. I like having two receivers on the bracket. Make sure you make it all fit nice and loose so that you can remove the bracket if that is what you are going for.

I used 2 6" reciever mounts then welded them to a 3"x6"x1/2" steel plate. Took off my tow hooks and bolted these in place, put in my extentions then welded on the front cross piece.

Could some of you second gen guys that have the two reciever style front mount post some pics? Not of the weight rack itself, but of the recievers and how they are mounted/built on the truck.

JohnnyFoxTrot you don't mind if I copy your idea do ya? The only thing is my truck doesn't come with tow hooks and has a plastic piece there. I guess I could cut out the plastic piece and put it in there like you did. It didn't look like you had to cut your bumper at all did you? If you don't mind me asking how much do you have invested in that with steel and everything?

No I don't mind at all. We made a few of these one day for me and a couple buddies. The recievers were 10 or 15 bucks from Rural King, the steel I got from a friend that has a welding shop and we never discussed a price so it was free. Some of you Missouri guys have seen it at Bloomsdale and liked it. Just remember to have the recievers bolted in and extensions in them before you weld on front plate so that it slides in and out easily. No I did not have to cut the bumper cover and you have even more room if you don't have a sport bumper cover. The bolt holes are behind you plastic cover I would guess. You can also make anything to fit in the recievers when not using rack. They are also strong enough to have your truck stuck and be yanked sideways with one of them to I know from experience.
