FSJ's being used for towing

We went camping for the first time in the Wagoneer this weekend. The main reason I bought it was to tow the camper with the whole family inside. It did great! Lets see some more pics of these things doing work.

Looks great. Nice setup.

Now, sport some suspenders and black socks to keep the FSJ towing tradition going

I've been thinking about suspenders! Just to save everybody from seeing my crack. And I agree about the small airstream or "twinkies". Always wanted one but they go for stupid money. This one is a 67 Fireball that I had to completely go through. We'll upgrade eventually, but it'll be good for a few years.

Nice setup! Ours only does some light towing - our Flagstaff pop up camper and our little boat.

Awesome thread! The only thing my jeep will tow are trailer sized parts bills.

You could make up a drop down plate to sandwich between the original pintle hitch. Brace to the frame with tube, set up to bolt through the rails. Set up the bottom with receiver hitch tube and use the stinger of choice. Can even get a combo pintle/ball mount if needed.

Sorry, it's a custom made frame, so it's different from yours.

There a build thread somewhere on this site.

Finished up the Panhead just in time to take it to a show. We were invited builders and got to show it off inside with 15 other select vehicles at Greaserama. Pretty honored.
