Recommended Posts

I would imagine your request will have to be "custom made"!

There is a guy here on the club that makes them. I have seen some of the ones he made. He does great work!  I was in a rush so what I did is bought a cub cadet pulling hitch, welded the top mounting plate and drilled the 2 bolt holes to mount on the rear end and then welded 2 nuts to the bottom for the factor hitch pin. 

 

For the wheelie bars I used angle iron made and x welded and mounted it to the rear end.

I used the boss in the bottom of the diff that the draw bar attached to for the bottom mount 

made a couple of tabs for the pin to slide thru and welded a piece of 3/8" X 2" flat bar across them

2 vertical 2"X2"X1/8" angle iron with a 1/4" plate welded on. This plate extended over the top of my diff

 where their were 2- 3/8"X16  holes, that is where I mounted the tpo plate to. Then the standard

3/4" all thread upright's for the hitch plate to be mounted to. When I did mine I welded the bottom nut on the all thread

and the top nut was just pulled down tight, well it got loose and fell off and got me DQ,ed, it got welded to.

The hitch plate is 3/8" and has a 1-1/2" hole  that is offset towards the diff with only about 1/2" of meat by the diff.

 You want the hook point as close to the diff as possible, The 3/4" all thread has 6 nuts on each side 2 on top 2 on bottom

and one on each side of the hitch plate. It is a vary basic hitch and strong as hell, been using it for 6 years 

and no problem.

I like Tony's hitch better, only change I would make is the hitch hole, round and closer to the diff, very simple design

I am going to look mine over and probally redeisgn eliminate the angle uprights, your only pulling on the all thread anyway

good looking hitch.
