Great work! I have to fab and install one on my dad's Ford L8000 dump. I'm not quite sure how thick is apropriate though. Anyone have any suggestions? I'm not quite sure just what factors I need to consider in the design process But I have a general Idea of what to do.

nice looking thanks for the pics.
We have all 15 and 25 ton pintle hooks with spring cushion where I work. Pretty tough, but they do work on them as some trucks pull a trailer almost everyday.

He said he would like to set it up for a 30 Ton trailer. I'm thinking 7/8" plate would work well but I'm not quite sure.

Adam that looks like a small pntle for such a big truck, and did you triple pass your D- rings.
Some times depending on the application I like to put a strong back across the plate.
Nice job however.
I hope work is well, This is the slowest Ive been in 20 years.
Not that I dont have work, I just dont have the bigger projects that I am used to.
The small jobs have always been good pocket change but the bigger $ 15,000 - $ 30,000.00 are what pay the bills and let you save a little.
Some of the bigger jobs are just now starting to come in.
All I can say is that Im glad I dont have alot of debt.
