Smart Alec!

Has your truck lives in New York State its whole life?

Most of it and before that it was a fish hauler in mass.... frame is solid but the cab it one bump from leaving.

Illinois has a law on the books to have them removed when not in use. Because it causes more damage in rear end collisions.

Maybe they should not be following so close.

They've had that law for a few years now. I live 1.5miles from IN/IL state line. Closest mid size town is 6 miles away innIL so do quite a business there & wife was  from IL and has lots of family there. I estimate at least 40% of IL  pickupsbI see in parking lots have rear hitches, have never heard of anyone getting a ticket for it. I 7sually keep mine in cab of my pu, not worried about a ticket butbI have had 2-3 stolen out of the receiver. Tried a locking pin onceb& had to cut it off with a torch after a mo th or so.

I live in a rural area and probably 50-60% of trucks running around here have hitches in. The only time that I've heard of anyone getting ticketed for the hitch being in, is after a rear end collision.
