Yeah that's my concern. If the pin depth is too much, then standard hitch pieces may not work. I really want it for my own attachments if say for example I get in a position where I'd need to pull it from the rear, so I guess as long as my stuf works I'll be ok

Standard stuff should be long enough, you just need to drill a new hole farther back.

Signing off, boarding a 14 hour flight to Dubai. Uggggh.

Took advantage of the snow day to take care of the little projects.

1. I got the Cobra 75 CB installed (anyone have an antenna tuner???). I found a nifty warning label on ebay to at least make the thieves laugh before they steal my antenna.

2. I installed a MUD UK dash pod for the EGT gauge and eventual ARB switches and boost gauge

3. Discovered that the axle breathers are the same thread as the ARB fittings, so I ran remote breathers to the snorkel.

Something you might want to do is either weld a guard onto the cage in the back that comes up and over the hi-lift (like a pinion guard) or cut it down so that it is below the height of the top of the roof in the back by a couple inches. I've seen photos of people who've been leaning over or just driving along and caught their carrier mounted hi-lift onto something less than flexible... not pretty.

I like the receiver in the cross member, just don't think it would be strong enough for the stuff I do like pulling a car trailer with a 110 on it or aggressive kinetic rope recoverys- the cross member itself can't (hasn't in my case) taken the full load there, the load needs to be tied back up the frame rail to spread the load further up the frame and keep the whole rear crossmember from twisting downward.

See signature line below....

You are absolutely right. But, keep in mind all the pintle hooks and bolt on receivers that bolt directly to the crossmember. None of those spread the load.

I am designing and building some c-shackle swivels similar to the Equipe design that bolt through the large holes on either side of the cross member.

Got the diesel gas can mount welded on today. It's attached directly to the tire carrier with some 1-1/4" .120 wall square tube. The can mount itself is removable.

Be interested in seeing some pics of these when you're done, if they are what I am thinking. Looking to remove my rear step and considering options for rear recovery point(s).

Thanks

Ian

It's a "Briggs & Stratton" can I painted yellow. But it looks like a Sceptor.

Actually, I am completely wrong. It's a Wedco can I painted yellow. Briggs and Stratton sells the Wedco can under their name. See the attached pic from EE. You can get the Wedco can at your local Ace Hardware by the way.

Actually its poseur. But yellow is the correct color for diesel cans be they scepter, wedco, or plastic hardware store non-jerry-can shaped things. I wouldn't have bothered but to each their own. I have three and they are black.

You ever put diesel in a gas engine? Not pretty! I had a buddy get same color jerry cans mixed up on a trail ride in Moab and one of the guys put diesel in his Jeep. A tow ride home and $2k later everything was fixed. I'll stick with the proper can marking.

Or you could simply mark the Jerry Can with a decal oh lets say .. " DIESEL FUEL ONLY " around the neck, but that it is not applicable to GAY CARB Cans *LMAO*
