Hensley hitch rockguard??

I recently got a Hensley hitch given to me by my brother-in-law because he didn't like or use it. I cleaned it up and got some new parts from Hensley and mounted it this morning. Now I am wondering how to use my existing Rock Solid rock guards on the Hensley stinger. Any thoughts by users? Or, what are others using with the Hensley hitch.

I got a longer shank stinger from Hensley to mount my rock tamers on. The original was just a little too tight to mount.

TowTector here...prefer the no gap protection & no stinger mods needed, just needed to open the gap a bit on the clamp.👍

Agree with Tater. In my case I purchased a Towtector that I thought would be a good product actually still do. My Hensley Stinger was too short and the coupling of the Towtector touched the bumper of my 2020 Ram 1500 and not clearance to insert the hitch pin. I was going to order the longer stinger from Hensley but I wasn't sure if that would solve the problem so I returned the Towtector for a refund, they were very accommodating people at Towtector. You can call Mike at Hensley 800-410-6580 ext 121 The longer stinger weighed in at about 50 lbs about 34 lbs heaver than hollow stinger. I also have a Cub so that makes a difference the extra weight was more than I wanted.

I had to go with the Hensley longer stinger with my RockTamers. Works well

Thank you for your thoughts. Being from Canada, the extended stinger is just going to be way too expensive to get here as Hensley only shippes UPS and they charge almost $70 brokerage fees on top of the shipping. We refer to them as Usual Pathetic Service!! Neighbour and I looked at the mount on the Rock Solid, and think we can fabricate a mount for it. Will get pictures up after the project is done.
