    Adding pintle hook to front bumper of M923 - Estimated weight capacity?

    Ooooo - there's a knee whacker in the making! Not poo pooing the idea, as all my Brit MoD vehicles have front hitches standard - great for 'nosing' trailers onto landing craft (yeah - do that all the time!!!), but handy, not only for recovery but also for rigid bar use. As Bruce + above...

    Note to self - Ignore flyer dates of Sat and Sun for next year, show up Thursday, best day is apparently Fri, head home Fri pm or Sat am.

    Land Rover, 1/2 ton, Airportable.

    Loaded for the car show tomorrow . Had to use the flat rack I made for the M916A1's fifth wheel as the fairgrounds entrance for MV's is too small for the M870A1 trailer.
