I would like the hitch to be able to have a pintle above it and hold the safety chains somehow. Keep me posted I am very interested and the June-July timeframe works for me.

Thanks
Eric

Eric,
The RN hitch does not have safety chain attachments. you could use jate rings to accomplish that.

Robb,
The pangolin4x4 hitch looked perfect to me for what I wanted. I actually talked to them, and they said they focus on series, and that the bolt pattern on series is different from defenders. they said they could do a custom defender one, they have before, but they are one-off's.

Here's a better one for ya guys. I don't have my Series here, or I'd confirm the hole pattern is the same as my 90. Just get it powdercoated and you're golden.

It saves your departure angle vs. the SafariGard.

This is the standard OEM hitch sold in the Brazil market. Not much good to those who require space for a pintle hitch, but may be of some interest to those looking to improve their departure angle while retaining the utility of the step and the good look of the NAS unit.

Update

Update: When I spoke with Rovertym, they indicated that they were already considering creating a rear AND front bumper for the Defender. Our specific discussion dealt with the receiver hitch.

Either way, I told Steve at Rovertym that I would send him the suggestions we all have as far features and price of the hitch so he can take all our comments into consideration.

This is what I have so far (in order of priority, highest to lowest)

1. Attach to existing mounting holes
2. Provide maximum departure angle
3. Step potential
4. Ability to mount a pintle above (what about a pintle that will insert into the hitch?)
5. Safety Chain attachment (sounds like this can be accomplished with Jate rings)

FYI: They have a "donor" truck they will be experimenting on, so that is a plus. I also told him I would be willing to buy 12 and then I could distribute them out to everyone interested. Maybe that would get us a better price.

More to follow.

Prepare to standby . . . Standby!

Price?

Will it be in the same price range as Pangolin's?

In my conversation with Steve at Rovertym, I mentioned that a good price range would be from $125-$175 but he has not stated a price yet. He will start designing/building it in July.

Ha Greg,

As Eric R mentioned, I'm interested but it must have a spot to mount a pintle hitch in the stock holes and the 2" receiver just below the rear cross member. The SG one was prefect. The 2" receiver was almost flush with the cross member and hung down very little. At least not enough to make any real difference in the departure angle. I realize Eric and I may have special needs and may have to have custom hitches made but would prefer to get this done as a group

Cheers
Scott

I'd be happy with a SG repo. That one was perfect. The really great part would be having a step that could mount to it.

Chris
Do you mean a step like this? http://www.pickupspecialties.com/hit...for_trucks.htm

If so that will be easy since they work in any (Except the new 4.4 RR) 2" receiver.

I hope this helps,
Eric

Hey Clay,

I think he has a design in mind, but he is having a buddy bring in his Defender to experiment on. Sounds like a "wait and see" type process from our end. I think he will give us a look at it before it roles into production so we can make suggestions or comments. At least I hope he will.

Greg

Here's a picture of the one I built for my D-90 - it's sort of a copy of the Rovers North hitch.
One 8" piece of 6" channel, one 11" long piece of 1-1/2" angle and a receiver tube from Northern - hardest part was drilling the hole pattern in the channel and cutting the notch to fit the receiver tube into (Bosch jigsaw).
