Hitch-Mounted Rock Guard
Gary Swensen needed a rock guard for his pickup when pulling his car trailer.
    “The rock guards I looked at on the market sold for $150 to $300. I made mine for only about $50 which was the cost for a receiver hitch, a pair of mud flaps, and nuts and bolts,” says Swensen.
    He welded a short length of square tubing vertically onto his truck’s existing receiver hitch. The mud flaps attach to a piece of square tubing that matches the width of his pickup, with a receiver hitch welded to the center of it. The hitch simply fits over the top of the tubing on his truck’s hitch.
     “I just use the one hitch pin to put it on or take it off,” notes Swensen.
