    Thumbs down Now THIS is a custom hitch!

    I am speechless. It's bad enough that this ridiculous contraption is expected to actually function as a hitch, but that somebody would actually install this thing on a Lexus!? The Facebook post this came from stated that the owner showed up at U-Haul wanting to rent a 6x12 trailer. Good Lord.

    I would hope not LOL! That 'hitch' (if I can call it that) looks like it wouldn't support a tongue load of five pounds, let alone actually pulling something. I'm in disbelief that the owner of this masterpiece really thought that would work.

    Oh I have plenty more Did you ever see the photos of the Viper I posted with a really unique 'jack plate'? If you haven't, you'll especially like them!
