tow rig...

Made a "tow bar" for the big rig....
tow-rig-web.jpg
3/8" plate drops down from my ramps (I pull RGN trailers and blade trailers).
Then I plasma cut out for the 5 x 2 x 1/4 and welded it through the sides of the 3/8". Receiver tube is welded to the top of the 5x2 with gusset's.
Ties into my light wiring for the electrics and good to go. I bought a brake controller, but highly doubt I will run out of brakes on the "tow rig"....

You may want to recheck the rating on that tow rig, I'm not sure it's designed to pull that much weight.

I think the statement "you cant even tell its back there" might actually apply here

Why not just build some beefy fenders and drive the Jeep up on the back??

Because it still has to make a living when play time is over!
trailer hitch is out of the way, fenders over the top would be a minor inconvenience.....
Would be kinda nice though huh?

I bet with some time you could come up with a design that wouldn't be in the way.
