Default Class III Hitch - From a CJ-5

I have an old class 3 hitch that was on my CJ5 that is free for the taking. This is the old 80's style that hung below the bumper. It mounts with the standard four bumper holes, and has the tie-ins that bolt through the frame behind the tires. It has a pintle hook mounting plate that is currently stuck in the 2x2 hole. My guess would be that you could heat it up and beat it out. While I believe that these use to be adjustable for a wider frame, the frame tie-ins have been set for 25 years, so my guess is they will never move again.

This hitch needs TLC. It needs a good blasting and painting. It is solid, made of 1/4" steel, and all the welds look good. Two reasons that I am giving it away; 1) I just installed a Dirtworx integrated hitch, 2) I would like to see it go to a good home instead of the scrap heap. It is located in Stevensville. If you "need" it, and will give it a good home, please send me a PM.
