Hidden hitch / tail pipe vibration

Installed a tube style hidden hitch on my '06 wrangler X. Installation was easy (bolt on), however, I'm having some vibration issues.

The hitch sits very close to the tail pipe. I'm finding the tail pipe is vibrating (against the hitch) at slow speeds (like in stop and go traffic).

Anyone else have this sort of problem? Fixes? I'm thinking about taking an inch or so off the tail pipe.

if you have a sawzall, that would be the quickest fix.

It is also not too difficult to ben the exhaust pipe or the hangers. You'd only need to go a half inch or so it sounds so it would be pretty easy.

I had the same issue with my tail pie and hitch and I ended cutting the tail pipe and then installing a curved tip
