I am working on a 1998 Masda B3000 pickup which will be used as a go home vehicle for when delivering trucks or other large vehicles.
This requires a solid safe mounting system for a tow bar. At first I thought I would simply make a mount that would extend from under the front bumper but I didn't like the idea of having the tow bar mounted in that fashion
So I removed the front bumper and fabricated a mount that is solidly afixed to the ends of the frame.
this also allows for the tow bar to be removed if needed
