I am a rather cheap sort.  If I can build it rather than buy it, I will do that first.  So, what I am looking for is a good design for a trailer hitch for my 2013 GU.  Something that would be easy and inexpensive to build but will hold up well.  Any ideas out there?  Thanks.

Have you looked at the ones on the Holopaw Ural website?

This "NORMAL" you speak of, doesn't sound very fun...

I've always googled stuff I want to buy and pinch the layout and design from the companies selling them and make it to suit my needs. I have a picture of leading link forks that I think are a good Idea but I'm going to take that idea and make something better. You could do the same with the trailer hitch and you can change the compaines designs to suit your needs as I have done.
I sometimes make 2 or 3 of what ever I'm making and sell 2 to cover the costs of materials as well lol

I've just been on the Holopaw Ural site and the tow hitch looks very straight forward and very easy to make but its got no bracket for the lighting board but thats easy to rectify witha mounting plate
