Custom ball hitch for 2009 500 Foreman

Recently picked up a 2009 Honda Foreman 500 and took it this weekend to fill feeders in West TX. The ball was way low so today I built an extended version. Used thick pipe and welded nut down into pipe from both sides. Raised it just under 4. Should work fine.

Thinking about a stiffener that bolts into these bolts.

Might be a good idea, with the ball up that high, you're going to get some extra leverage. Can you post a picture of that foreman, sure looks to be in good shape for the year.

Sweet, looks like a leftover off the showroom floor. Next picture, I hope to see a 12 point rack strapped across the back. Your name Hank? I see some propane accessories around there.

Sedona Buzzsaws. This is the 3rd ATV Ive had them on. Run with 7lbs of pressure and are super smooth plus great on rock.
