usually you just need to have a BIG hitch for them to hook up to. Usually something w/ a 2-3" whole in it.

Usually a 3" Dia. opening is the minimum allowed and the closer to the back of the truck the better. There is usually a allowed minimum distance from the center of the rear axle to the hook point, sometimes the hook point needs to be the furthest point on the vehicle.

Good luck J, once you hook you will be hooked.

Do you guys think a 16,000# pintle hook is strong enough for some beginner sled pulling?
