4. I too had a space between frame and hitch flange/plate, getting access to torque wrench before I tighten down any further
This really boggles my mind. How can they make something that far off?

8. I had the back on jack stands but I think it wouldn't be hard to do flat, IMHO
I did mine without jacks. Just backed up to the edge of the driveway.
