    Cool

    I fix a couple dozen a year for folks that can't stand the rattle. Just weld some dots and grind to suit. Problem solved and 10 bucks in my pocket...Bob

    Cool

    The biggest problem with the receiver tubes is the factory ones went "el cheapo" and use 3/16 wall thickness tube instead of the old Reese 1/4" wall with the broached out seam weld on the inside. Thats why they went thinner wall so they wouldn't have to fool with the seam weld down one side...Bob

    Here is an idea I got from seeing how a bicycle handlebar is attached.

    Hope you can figure out how it works as my drawing skills are not so good.

    Red plate is tapped for the bolt while blue one has thru hole.

    Lots of work but it does take the play out of any attachment.

    It will require leaving a hole or provision to tighten up the clamp bolt in whatever fixture you attach the clamp to.
