You need:

medium towbar, military type, rated 39000 lbs off road and 49000 on...check ebay

towbar adapters, large... saturnsurplus.com oshkoshequipment.com ebay

M715 front shackle mounts for towbar...hard to find...ebay maybe...

Heres the towbar adapters from Saturn Surplus:



The piece that goes onto the M715 front shackle and hooks to the towbar adapter looks like a big metal Y...there are 2 on the right edge of this pic:




Here is a pic of the towbar with a different towbar adapter on the towbar and the shackle mounts for the M715 stacked on the side:



The pin on the wide end of the shackle mount hooks through the front bumper to the frame. The small end pin hooks the shackle mount piece to the towbar adapter. The middle pin is where you can pin the big U shaped towing shackle that you take off when you put the shackle mount piece on the frame.

Let me know if you need more.

You will also need the pins to put it all together and the small locking pins for the big pins...

Just make sure the front bumper is in place while you're tugging that truck around. It seems to put a lot of pressure on the frame horns and bends them up without the bumper there to support things.

I hooked my towbar up by myself...but it is heavy...the main part, not counting the adapters...just the big legs of the bar from the lunette eye to where the towbar adapters mount is about 150-160 pounds...
