    Cool

    I used to like putting on hitches as i did hundreds of them. My grand dad was an early pioneer of the truck hitch back when you couldn't run and buy one off the shelf....Bob

    Very nice work. I like it.

    The ones that I have built up here are much the same, with a couple of extra steps - Everything built for the oilpatch, construction, or forestry.

    On the winch tractor tow aprons, we run 3/4" plate for the apron, then wrap the lower edge and sides with flat bar. Anything from 3/4" x 4" to 1" x 3" depending on customer.

    Gravel truck and log truck tow aprons same thing. Depending on who you work for, and their particular "spec".... I have seen the apron wraps as deep as 4" around the bottom edge, and 6" to 12" deep at the top where it attaches to main frame.

    Winch tractor aprons are welded to the ramp/roll assembley then bolted on. Some weld them to the frame, but I don't - They are a nightmare to repair.

    Gravel truck and log truck aprons are usually part of a removable frame insert.

    I see that your pintle hitch is quite high, so the reinforcement that I do here is unneccessary in your application.

    You ever use the pintle hitch with the air-activated slack compensator??? A little extra work but the end product is nice to tow with - No hammering.

    Don't mind me, I'm rambling tonight.

    Nice work. Keep it up.

    Gotta love Mag Drills.
    Later,
