Adding a hitch to a 73 truck/ front tow points

Postby mjdriver » Mon May 06, 2019 12:04 pm

Im looking to add a hitch to my 73 j2000, was wondering what my options are, since they don't make one for my truck, was thinking going with some universal one.

I also need to add front recovery points, im thinking a hook on each frame rail, not sure about drilling through the frame though.

Just looking for tips, thanks

The rear frame rails are pretty wide. On my 67 my options were a universal hitch for a RV or build my own. I made templates for the side brackets out of cardboard and transferred it to 3/8 steel. Welded in a cross tube and reciever tube and secured it with eight gr8 bolts. Build your own and go overkill. It will be worth it.
