Three-in-One Grill Guard Tire Holder and Hitch
"Here's an idea that's been helpful in our farming operation," says Randy Roling, Bernard, Iowa. "It started out as just a grill guard for our pickup but I built a spare tire holder onto the guard which makes the tire easy to get at.
"Later, I bought an 'eze hitch' from a company, and made a frame to weld it to the grill guard. The tow hitch slides in and out on a pipe. I use it to pull the truck when I go from farm to farm. That way, I have all my tools, fuel and transportation with me in case I have any trouble, and use it to go home at the end of the day.
"Under the hitch, I made a telescoping hitch to push or pull equipment in and out of tight parking spots. Now I can back a wagon into a tight spot in just a few seconds. This piece of equipment attaches to the pickup with just four bolts so it's ready to come off and install on my next truck."
