rear tow points

i have a class II reciever that i dont want to part with for numerous reasons. this eliminates the option of frame mounting a tow hook. any other options for installing a rear tow point??
thanks

Re: rear tow points

[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] Dear G-Man; when we installed a nice aftermarket receiver hitch on our ZJ, I siezed upon the opportunity to bolt two tow hooks to the flat plates which connect the hitch to the frame of the ZJ. Because the plates were flush against the frame we had to drill and tap them NF to hold the hooks, but is it ever neat![img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]

Re: rear tow points

[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img] Your by-line reminds me of a Karmann Ghia we used to have. It had what I euphemistically call a "Pleasant Mechanical Presence". In other words, it let you know it was there.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img] In other words it shook your teeth out.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img] In other words it put more miles on YOU that you did on IT.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

Re: rear tow points

Weld a tow hook or bolt a D ring shckle through a piece of 2" receiver tube material, and slide it into your reciever, and bolt it with 1/2" grade 8 shoulder bolt.

Re: rear tow points

Hey, i have seen some things that slide into your trailer hitch that has a d ring on the end of it for like 35 bucks at a 4wheel store. I have seen a lot of those around here, guess people like them.

Re: rear tow points

ive seen the d rings and such that mount in the reciever, but the class II is only a 1 1/4" receiver and rated for 3000# for towing, i wouldnt think it would be sturdy enough for tugging the jeep out of a good stuck?

Re: rear tow points

others are talking bout the receiver d ring or hook. I was just at walmart last night and they carry the tow hook that fits in the 2" receiver like they were talking about.
