    I searched first and did not locate a thread for this. Does anyone know where I can get a trailer hitch with a 2 inch square receiver for a 92 Sambar?

    My 88 Acty has what appears to be a custom fabbed hitch receiver. Behind the bumper is a 2" x 4" tube steel member with the 2" receiver housing welded to it. It bolts nicely to the bumper and the bed. Let me know if you would like some pics. I could take some and post tomorrow.

    Will it fit the Sambar as it has the rear engine and fold down access panel? If so I'm interested

    Previous owners who installed the hitch receiver didn't care about originality but the hitch does work great IMG_2307.JPG IMG_2306.JPG IMG_2305.JPG IMG_2304.JPG IMG_2303.JPG

    Thank you for posting the pics .With the fold down engine door, I'm thinking a trailer hitch is not possible.

    rear hitch is extremely hard to mount on Sambar, i think its been done but it would be tough because all thats there is the rear engine cover

    i’m trying to attempt this on my Sambar
    as mine does not have a rear engine access door. It has a campervan body kit which means i pretty much have to remove the whole rear bumper to do a service.
    i’m sure there’s a way to get this done

    You might be able to rig a receiver on both frame rails, that the hitch assembly could slide into. That would allow the hitch to be easily dismounted for access to the engine.

    Look at picture of some of the receiver hitch setups for big trucks, amazon will have a bunch, so will Google image searches. They have a cross tube, with the 2-inch receiver welded to it, and plates which mount to the frame.

    You should be able to fabricate something which would be similar, but with additional receivers on both sides attached to the frame.
