I have a Slee 2" receiver for the 80 series/LX 450 for sale. I just had a new rear bumper built by Jim (SROR) and have decided to just bolt up a regular hitch when I need to tow rather than integrate this into the new bumper, and I have a different extraction point now. It is the SOF1059 that retails for $195 at the link below.

Your price is $145 shipped to your door, or $140 if we meet in South Denver or closer to Monument.

I installed this in the stock rear bumper/crossmember and used it for some fairly heavy extractions as well as towing. It is technically designed for the Slee rear bumper, but worked flawlessly in the stock setup. You get triangulation to the frame and lose no clearance offroad.

I don't believe that Slee rates this setup and I'm not making any claims here. The one caveat I have is that I drilled through the lower nut in each nutsert to run the bolt all the way through the crossmember (drilling that as well to actually get the bolt all the way through :hill:). I filled the gap with grade 8 washers. I think this added a good degree of strength, and the hardware required for this setup is included.

You can check here for a writeup on my install to see what I am talking about. The link has all the pics - the pic here shows the setup before I bolted up the plate.
