I think fabricating the whole reciever would be the way to go :thumbsFlassh said:Hi, Dohyatt
Can you put me in touch with one of the wrecking yards - if any of these trucks are being parted out, I would like to purchase the trailer hitch mounting system attached to the frame.
I want to build a "through the license plate" receiver system, and need to grind off the welded socket for the factory hitch. I don't want to damage the stock one in case I want to return my 03 to original.

Don't give up on a new fabrication too quickly.Flassh said:There's no comparable hitch available on the aftermarket for the SSR or Trailblazer.
The factory hitch has a curved crossmember, and would be fairly hard to duplicate in a handbuilt piece.
It seems simpler to cut off the factory hitch socket and replace it with a standard receiver sleeve.
No panic - many other projects to come first.
