seriously? is this the way you work on your airplane as well? rigging up all sorts of dodgy fixes, clearly demonstrating a lack of understanding of the physics and forces involved? a new S-10 reciever hitch is 60 bucks https://www.carid.com/chevy-s-10-bl...MIjfyR5biC4gIVAr3sCh1xOwBAEAQYBCABEgJ7DvD_BwE Mounting it would take less than an hour, and you have a safe towing platform. Instead you spend all sorts of time shade tree "engineering" a horrible solution that is clearly dangerous! good luck with that!
