    Default Good hitch for pulling non-military trailers.

    Forgive me if this has been beaten to death already, just wanted to give credit to my step father for designing this bolt on hitch for my Deuce.
    Enables me to pull my dump trailer in the meantime before I install a scissor jack under the truck bed in the next off season.https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...1c9c7d41c5.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...d8318ae88f.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...2aeed160c5.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...bf825b1a22.jpg

    I don't think custom hitches for Deuces and 5-tons will ever be considered "beaten to death!" I like seeing the different designs, yours seems very well-built and looks fantastic.

    Be sure to post up pics of it in action with your dump trailer.

    Good job!
