    USMC MTVR tow bar
    NSN 2350-01-496-8356 and figure 6-1A
    adapter NSN 2540-01-500-5325
    Sorry - tried to upload pic from MRAP Battlefield Recovery Tecniques Manual..

    But it is much the prefered way to suspend tow - vs the towbar ends being attatched to the dead vehicle axle.

    For my wrecker, my wish list is sheetmetal!

    But I can already see that easy bed tool access, a better way into the control cab, and lots of spotlights will be wanted on my truck.

    I was thinking about putting a rear slavecable recepticle as well.

    And when at last he came upon the vehicle, he perceived the distress of the engine therein and forthwith struck it with a hammer and it was good. Thereupon the engine ignited and was filled with strength...

    Don't follow me, you won't make it! Heck I probably won't!

    Maybe a removable hydraulic rear winch on the 5th wheel(M819).

    Underbed storage boxes.
