That look great, Ryan. Just a thought on the clevis mount. How about a tab just below and forward of the hitch ball for it? That would lower the clevis and center it better for turns.

Looks great! I agree with KennyP on the clevis mount, moving it would solve your problems.

Thanks everybody!

I thought about making something out of round bar underneath, but most of the time I just use a chain with a big hook on the ball anyway. I guess you could say that the clevis is just there just in case... and for looks. :D
