    <P style="MARGIN: 0px">My buddy has a short bed ford pickup. We want to haul the 4 wheeler and tow a boat at the same time.&nbsp; The tailgate must ride open with the 4 wheeler in the bed. The problem is the winch stand on the boat trailer will then hit the tailgate.&nbsp; </P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px"><BR>I'm thinking about taking some 2" box tubing and making an extension from the reese receiver. I would need about 18 inches added.&nbsp; Has anyone ever done this? Can you think of a better way?</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">Thanks</P>

    <P>Call a hitch shop.&nbsp; Ive seen pickups with the slip in campers that hang well over the back of the truck pulling boats on a longer hitch.&nbsp; I believe they make the hitch you are looking for.</P>
