As far as the hitch goes, you could always just buy a block of steel to fill the gap between the bumper and hitch, drill 2 holes thru it, get some longer bolts and bolt the hitch back to the bumper.

I've actually been considering that option... as I said im on a tight budget but Im sure I have some steel stock laying around the shop... just dont really want to fab up my own brackets for the bumper lol
