Yep, you could say I've got a hitch in my 'git along! :histerica

(and that Hitch Doc sonomabeach needs to be removed in order to change the rear tire, which is a major PITA...)

I dunno, Ron. I've seen some of the other stuff you've done and I'm not sure this qualifies as a "ghetto mod". It actually makes a little sense... or maybe I'm starting to see the method to your madness in these things. :rolleyes:

On a related note: I hope you have a similar setup on the other side of those blocks, to tie them together. Without it those blocks will want to fold toward the hitch. That would not be a good thing.

I have the same problem with the hitch I have mounted. (Dauntless)

What chu talkin' 'bout, Willis... I mean Garry?

I have a Dauntless hitch and have not yet had to remove it to remove/install the rear wheel. I have an '05, but do not know whether that makes a difference.

Ron, that is not ghetto. If you had used duct tape or electrical tape THAT would be ghetto.

The straps are definitely high tech

Garry has a 1600GTL, you should have seen what we did at CCR to get the rear wheel off to do the final drive oil change. It involved 2x6s and muscle. You have to remove the wheel to get to the FD filler plug. Didn't BMW learn anything?

Nothing is more ghetto then putting a blanket on the rear seat and piling firewood on until the front wheel comes off the ground. Wasn't me, you know who you are, time to come clean.

You know Robert, you're right.

THIS is ghetto: :wow:

OK, OK, OK, you win. Actually Ron they call that ingenuity.

Robert

BTW you can get a lift with a drop plate for $400.00

This is pretty cool mod. Congratulations. 13 years in the market and we still find new innovative ways to make our lives easier with the LT. :) I cant imagine what PITA would it be in the first year

No one in the ghetto would use _16_ tenpenny nails on this project. You have a 4x factor of safety!

My thoughts, exactly. I believe there's a mandatory one point deduction on the final score due to no duct tape. :D

I'm inclined to agree with Ron on this one - this could be a new low - let's see how close we've come to the "definition" of a Ghetto Mod.......

1. It's got to be functional :check:
2. It's got to be very inexpensive :check:
3. It's got to look good and feel good, dahling
4. It's got to be easy to implement :check:
5. It's got to look OEM, or darned close
6. It's got to be something that can be built with everyday hardware available at ACE or Home Depot :check:

Four out of six...not good, not bad.
I'm going to say that this is a successful new low!

So..... what do you think this is used for ?

Well I can think of three or four things but since this forum is rather open, I'm afraid I can't say what it's used for without the censors shutting us down.

On the other hand, Aerostitch might offer it as the latest in titanium golf tees. Guaranteed not to dislodge. Reusable. Can also serve as a divot tool. Endorsed by both the PGA and LPGA. Warning! The sudden impact of this tee with a carbon fiber club could result in a binary explosion.

Or, attach it to a 3/8 inch ratchet drive to remove the perforated plate in the bottom of your shower stall.

Attached to a power drill it would probably do a pretty good job mixing the two components for epoxy.

That's it. Uncle!
