Jate Ring Dimension

In answer to the question about Jate Rings - they are 85mm
between the inside faces.

Thanks for that, any clues where I can get some that are 93mm ?

I'm guessing here, but are you trying to mount JATE rings on a car with a
tow hitch mounted? If so it's a *lot* easier to get a ball/jaw combo hitch.

some places (can't remember where) sell wide-mouthed JATE rings, but they've
just had 4mm ground out of each side of the jaws - they're almost
definitely not as strong as standard ones.

You'll be thinking of these ones:

Yes, you'll lose some strength by relieving them in the manner shown
(6mm per side) but it won't matter in most circumstances. If you can
limit the loss to 4mm per side even better.

A cheaper alternative even to the ball/jaw combo hitch if you have the
space is to mount a jaw/ball as high up the drop plate as possible (just
make sure that a dropped/swinging tailgate has enough clearance). In
most cases that will give you more than adequate clearance to use the
lower ball. (Making several assumptions there, eh!)

You would be guessing wrong ;-)

The problem is the steering guard mounting.

Just had a google and found the part number I want ZXC9435, this leads me to the
good people at Dingocroft and their 96mm wide rings, I shall dispatch my man
forthwith to procure me a pair !

My assumptions were also wrong! Can't win 'em all.
