yeah thats what im telling every one! if you would like one i can make you one for cheap

The tubes houses a 6 in bolt (pin if you will) that is spring loaded and is held down by a set screw so it wont back out then i got 3/4in bar stock and made a L handle and welded a washer on it with a side cut off

When you put the L handle in it pushes the bolt down to pose as the bottom pin


The bracket mounted on the truck has a tiny peace of angle so you can put the L handle and turn it to lock it in

If you need any further explanation please let me know ill be happy to take extra pics

So far it works good! cant wait for it to be done so i can start on my next build that i saw on the KC Hi-Lights pit truck i saw in vegas a while back at a pre-runner race pics of this will come soon
