Focus and 71 bronco
It’s bolted through the steel frame. My old Jeep commander had a hide a hitch that connected the same way. I paid
100 bucks for it and it bolted on through existing holes. I’m hoping the bronco at least comes with a break controller.

That's exactly how the Wranglers hitch is installed. It's one of the reasons these type vehicles aren't tow monsters. The second reason is they aren't built for towing. That's why manufacturers build trucks.

Wrangler hitch mounted the same way, at least on the JKU I had. Keep in mind, you are supporting tongue weight, which is not all that much.

Not sure what you’re pointing out.

It’s bolted onto the the rear frame crossmember with four through bolts exactly like the Jeep JK and JLs are (and I think the Ranger w/o the max tow package).

Edit: typing slow, haven’t had coffee yet brothers...

Brake controllers are late availability.

Yes, I got it; Apparently, it's a JK/JL with a Ford Performance rear diff cover on it. Good trick :cool:
