Used to use the rear towing eyes whenever someone was bogged down. With the new towbar I can't tow anyone as they replace the factory hooks. Very dangerous using the towball, so I need a bolt on accessory.

I can get a 5,000kg NATO pintle hook. Towbar's only 1,750kg. As far as I'm aware my only other option would be to buy a bolt on 2" receiver as well as a shackle hitch receiver. More expensive and less depart angle.

What would you guys go with?

well if you use a standard trailer hitch setup in the rear.
then you can open up for lots of tow accys.
pix in the future on this as i am making a tow bar using
3inch od pipe and a couple of 15k couplers welded together
nice as the military terex tele handler has a ball adaptor on the forks

that way you can push the dead car or truck on to a trailer or move it around the parking lot or in the shop.
not for on the road use.
but handy for ready rescue.
