    F-250 3" Hitch

    Looking for some ideas to tighten up the slop in the adapters for my rack. I've got a Kuat NV 2" hitch that is rock solid. I recently upgrade trucks from a F-150 to a F-250. The F-250 came with the 3" hitch with reducers that slide inside the receiver for 2.5" and another that slides into the 2.5" to reduce to 2". When I use my rack now I've got quite a bit of slop in the hitch from the reducers because the cam lock only tightens itself on the 2" adapter. I've got some ideas on what I would like to do but wanted to see if anyone here as a solution to this problem. Thanks in advance.

    Look for something like in the above link. I've made my own out of 3/4" rod stock and grade 8 bolts, just a top and bottom bar with holes drilled though each side. Tighten the bejesus out of it, and it'll get rid of not only slop, but all the rattling.
    I would advise not taking my advice.
