What are those for??

On my 110, under the rear cross member, there's 3 welded plate with hole in them. One's in the middle and two other on each side. they're under the rear cross member. I wanted to weld a hidden hitch and found these.. What are they for?

I believe the NAS style bumper and other tow hitch arrangements bolt to the crossmember in those locations. I didn't add them when I rebuilt my crossmember because I didn't have anything that required them.

Hmmmmm... It's not an NAS 110 but an Ex-Mod one.. I have the military tow hitch ( like a claw) but these thing are right under the cross member.. I want to had a "hidden hitch" so I can tow the chipper and the wood splitter for work. I have a sankey trailer as well, hence the military hitch..

My chassis is military, it has the same plates. They aren't for the non-NAS hitch, because the truck had one and it wasn't bolted (rusted) to these points.

The MOD and other military users have eleventy seven accessories that bolt on the 110, could be for anything.

All euro spec rovers have these, the rear (flip down) step uses the LH ones, and the 3 that are centrally placed are used for the angled piece of steel that helps support the adjustable height tow hitch.

and also used for fuel tank guard mountings.

you can see the holes in the angle iron thats mounted horizontally on that hitch frame.


and this flip down rear step is what uses the LH holes;

Oh, I see! says the blind man.. I'll have to come up with a new plan then... Anyone with an European 110 has put another hitch ? I need the nato hook and a regular hitch for occasional towing..

Thanks
Jeff

Anyone can tell me where the two sides arms are supposed to attach to? Their angle looks like it's not on the rear crossmember.. On the frame rails perhaps?
