Default Class Three Receiver Tubing Needed

I need a 7 1/2" long piece for the rear bumper I am building.... Does anybody have a chunk i can get? Drew... ? The regular 2 1/2" tubing i have has a seam in it that prevents the hitch from sliding in...

I used the tubing you mentioned. I just hit it with a flat file, the material acutally comes off really fast when you are just hitting the seam. I am hording what little I have left for my own hitch design. But if you are in a jam, we can work something out. Seriously though, I used 1/4" wall and with about 5 minutes on a file you can get a nice tight, but sliding, fit.

I just cut down a piece of 3" tubing with a 1/4" wall. I could cut you off a slice if you need it. Are you around tonight? Check your PM for my #

Will this work for you? Free if you want it. The tube is 6.5" long.

Drew fixed me up, just got back from over there. Thanks man, really appreciate it!

Thanks for the pic 60wag, I was gonna dice my old receiver up to use it too, but i really needed 7 1/2"...

Class 5 is kinda heavy for da old cruza I think my limit will always be a 5000lb trailer, so class 3 is good for me. of course, no telling what my actual hitch will be rated for once i finish welding it all up. looks like it might be at least as good as the class 3 hitch i took off the truck though..
