    I just bought one that has the pintle on it, but also has some bolts hanging down that look suspiciously like it had a receiver on it. (The Army gave it to a local PD, so I've been busy un-fscking the weird things the PD did to it :) )

    I would imagine you should be able to get a Blazer hitch on there -- it is, after all, just a Blazer -- though the rear shackle mounts may need moving or something. If you don't find out in a week or two, I'll may be putting one on mine, and I'll find out for sure :D
