  • Another pintle plate

    Just did this. Never did a bolt on but the owner wanted it like that. His last truck was done this way & it's been in use for 20 yrs with no issues. I just copied it & added a few more bolts. 45t pintle & d-rings are on order so I'll finish when they come in. The pintle is overkill but again that is what he wants. Also need to add brackets for air & electric once he decides where he wants them. It's on a log truck & he tows a 20 ton trailer with his track chipper on it. I'm also building his bunks. 3/4" plate with a 1/2" x 5" stiffener across inside bottom. All 5/8" gr 8 bolts. I've never seen these bolted on & probably wouldn't have done it except his other truck is fine.

    Looks good. I really don't see anything wrong with bolts.

      Now days most big trucks have stickers that say "Do Not Weld" on them. Supposed to be heat treated steel. I like the bolts too. Looks good...Bob
