Source for Pintle Hitch?

Howdy,

I am trying to find a source for the rotating/swiveling NATO style pintle hitches that I've seen in the military and on Land Rovers. I did a search, and found diagrams for exactly what I'm looking for, so I know they exist.

Does anyone have a retail source in the US for these hitches? I can find heavy duty ones that extend through the crossmember with cushioning springs, but I'm more interested in the original flush-mount NATO style. I've been scouring E-bay, but I am possibly interested in purchasing a few of them, so I'd like to find a retail source.

FWIW, this won't be going on a Land Rover, but rather on the other type of originally-military 4x4 short wheelbase vehicle which I probably shouldn't speak the name of here.

Thanks for your help!

I'd love to see a picture of what you are refering to. Are any of these what you are looking for? http://www.iqfifthwheelhitches.com/p...eHitches/Hooks

I have the third one from the top which I bought from http://www.mytscstore.com/default.asp. They still stock them, but don't appear on their site. It attaches to a hook mount plate.

Cheers

Ebay usually has used ones for 15-20 bucks.

Tony,
I went to Randolph Macon but won't hold the HSC thing against you.

I went to HSC also. I married a longwood girl and live in town now. If you guys are coming down for a football game, hit me up. I don't own a LR so I don't frequent this board much, but I'm always interested in wheeling in the central/mountain part of the state.

KevinNY, that's exactly what I'm looking for. I want to pull a USGI M416 1/4 ton trailer with my CJ7. I want the rotating style, and I want to surface mount it through whatever rear bumper set up I end up with.

I will look up the picture that I found on this site and post it as well...

Haven't been to a football game since I was a student and went through campus for the first time since graduation last year as I happened to be nearby with my wife. It amazed me how little anything had changed in over 10 years save the new enourmous library and my fraternity house being gone.

Me too. Weird, it looks like we're 2-2 on the D-90 board. Although I saw someone else on here was from Ashland, so maybe Doug and I are up.
