    Default 2" receiver hole size

    Building a winch adapter to fit in my 2" receiver. I know the hitch pin is advertised as 5/8", but is 5/8" really the drill size used to make the hole or is a slightly larger drill actually used by the industry?

    Cool

    5/8" is the standard. Maybe yours has some powder coat in the hole...Bob

    if the pin is 5/8 then the hole needs to be bigger than 5/8 like 35/64or 11/16

    Default Hitch Receiver pin size

    Hi,
    I have a front hitch on my Exploder and had to weld a license plate holder together, cops told me to get her done. 5/8" drill did the trick for me with paint on it. 1/32" bigger won't hurt with paint on it.

    So, you have the receiver, right? And it has the hole in it, right?
