    You'll need a good day to install the lift kit.

    The hitch was from a local part store.

    Mav0016, I would say to purchase the two plates you need and once you raise the Pat up in the rear it's easy to see what holes are used. There are three holes or bolts used for each plate (right and left). The front two holes I used a screwdriver-installed rivet nut or Jacknut to put in the holes for where the plate bolts to the body. The third or rear most hole use a good grade 8 nut and bolt combo can be used. I used loctite on the threads.
    Now I'm sure you are wondering what the heck is a jacknut? Well I ordered them from McMaster-Carr Look in the fastener section and you'll see rivnuts and pics anyway the part number I used is 90186A313 and this is for a pack of 25 with a little sheet metal installation tool included.
    It only is for a 1/4 in bolt so I used a grade 8 with a stainless body washer since the bolt is small. However it seems more than enough for supporting this plate.
