Re: what did this hitch come off of?

I would spend 50 bucks at the junk yard and get the right one...

if I couldn't find one at the junkyard I would spend the 100 bucks for a new one.

Re: what did this hitch come off of?

Hmmm, Googling Z-3791 came up with a couple ads for S10 hitches. They don't look like the one you have though.

Re: what did this hitch come off of?

I just crossreferenced the numbers and found what it's for. It was originally on a '96 Geo Metro.

Re: what did this hitch come off of?

That 159 number looks like a GM P/N to me, checked Gmpartdirect but nothing found.

Also typed that Z number into google and read a thread that said it's from a Bravada

So, is that why GM is doing so poorly? They're re-using Ford parts from the last century?

Just messing around. I did search both sets of numbers earlier and didn't come up with anything for the longer one, but the second set brought up info on S-10 and Blazer applications.

Re: what did this hitch come off of?

its a special hitch.

you can put it on the back of an s-10 till you fry the tranny, then you just put it on the ft, so you can be towed to a tranny shop.

thats what the x means.

rotatble.

Re: what did this hitch come off of?

Your hitch looks just like one i own; I had it on my 1993 Ford Explorer; sold the truck, kept the hitch. Now I'm cleaning out my garage and want to sell it. Did you ever get a straight answer to your question? I would like to find out what other applications this hitch might fit. MechanicalMann
