I bought these along with the speakers (also on Amazon). Worked great and way better than cutting and splicing.

IMMORTEN Final touch: a good coat of Hammerite spray paint. (silver because it was the only thing I had laying around)

IMMORTEN Like with the straps; the bolts comes with a very thin coating from the factory. In this case it looks like a very thin coat of black oxide treatment.

So I am treating the non threaded part with Bruno X rust preventer as a primer, and I will then spray paint them with Hammerite spray paint afterwards.

The threaded part will be lubed up in anti seize to prevent the bolts seizing, and thereby make it easier for any further removal. (Credit to wingless for this advice.)

IMMORTEN Last bits and bobs arrived today. Now to wait for a clear day to work on my Jeep.



This has to be the first time that I have ever experienced the stealership being the cheapest place to buy parts.

And these are original “made in USA” parts too.

Yes it has two needle zerks. One is visible in the picture on the right, and the other is on the opposite side on the left most pivot point in the picture.

Now I need to pick up a needle point adapter for my grease gun.

These are the wiring adapter harnesses I used to permit the OEM wiring to remain intact.

1996maroonzjf Well, it came in today. It’s very beefy to say the least. Both parts together weigh about 25lbs.

They can be noisier but give WAY more articulation and unless you have a pintle hitch you are going to be hard pressed to steal a pintle ring trailer

Yeah I had originally planned on this too. But after talking to some people who had actually run them, they convinced me the noise and clanking would drive me crazy. The play between the lunette ring and pintle hook is just too much for my liking. I do really like the fact that they are simple and widely used though. There is a reason the military and construction industry uses them.

You know....just your typical EU politicians in a nutshell.
