Yes it will. The Rock Tamer bracket slides over the hitch shank, not the receiver tube.
So if you put the shank in the receiver and line up the holes, you need an inch of exposed shank sticking out of the receiver tube, outside of the built up ring on the end of the receiver.

Oh, I was reading wrong. Thanks for relieving me of another delusion. My hitch is a Reese dual cam. I'll try that but I bet it's got plenty of room.

Plenty of room. In fact, I was able to move the hitch on my Tahoe forward by almost 3 inches.

Good for a short wheelbase Tahoe. Probably not needed for a Yukon XL.

Anyone know if a clamp on Rock Tamer will work? The web page says it needs one inch. There is one inch total including the buildup on the tube end. I might have to find one and look at it.

They mount on the ball mount shank, not the receiver tube.

Sorry, guess I should read page 2 before answering a page one post!

Good picture, Thanks! Looks like you're using the rock guard as a depth stop gage for aligning the pin hole. Am I right?

After seeing Rock Tamers at Casini on CoastalView's rig, I ordered a set from Amazon this morning - $167 & free shipping. They look well made and easy to mount.

I then had to turn over to get a glimpse of that 'hit-and-run' rig heading for parts untold...(Bonnie Clair Dry Lake, NV)...

I made my own. Two peices of alumium angle that fits into the ends of the receiver. Two quarter fender flaps I purchased from the local Fruehuf Dealer(semi-trailers) and the bolts I got at LOWES. THEY slide into the ends of the receiver and are held in with tarp straps. I leave them on all the time. Never take them off. In total I think I have about 10 bucks in them. They might be a little Ruab Goldburg but they work fine.

It fits around the "draw bar". You just slip the draw bar through the square hole in the rock tamer before inserting it into the receiver.

Go to this link to see all you would want to know about them. http://mrtruck.net/mudflap.htm
