    I am going to build a hitch for the frontend of my K10 to use as a pull point or maybe someday mount a winch on a multi mount setup. Also gonna make a little step to slide in it to stand on when working under the hood.

    Sooo... I've got a hitch that was welded to the frame of another truck that i torched off that I'm gonna use as a starting point but am still unsure about the rest.Any body got any suggestions/pics of something like this? I would like the reciever to be just under the stock bumper and be flush with it when it is empty.

    Any ideas are welcome!

    Go to the Warn site. I found a front hitch for my 87 K5.
    Looked up the part # and called around for best price.
    I think it was about $150 but cant remember exactly.

    here is the front hitch on mine, it was on here when I bought the truck...I am not sure how strong this is, as it's just bolted to the bumper and front crossmember. Here's a good shot of it:

    here's a side shot showing it sits flush with the bumper:
