What is the proper name part # for these?

MPi-KMS-72

Are they lifting rings or towing rings or what?

Weren't they once fitted to the rear chassis crossmember on military IIa's?

Hmmm I thought they'd be cheaper sourced from the UK, they average $50-$80 a set here. £25.00 each at Famous Four- Is that a typical price for them over there? Perhaps these are one item where there is no economy to be had by buying direct from England...
 
I've got some lifting rings or something off a lightweight- they are pretty insubstantial through and once I got them I decided they might work for tying the vehicle down but they wouldn't be the best choice for a recovery point.
 
i have got a pair on the front of my s3 109
they might help me if i get stuck

i no some one who has a tow ball on the front of theres and that seams to work prety well
 
Military bumpers also have 4 holes in them- for a pintle hook apparently- but why?

They are fitted in pairs to all MoD Series LRs, and were for airlifting. Try PA Blanchard (www.pablanchard.co.uk) - he stocks lots of ex-MoD genuine spares at typically 1/3 the normal price, and will almost certainly have some cheaper second hand ones too.
 
MAN I'd LOVE to have an ex MOD IIa... What has it got on the rear crossmember? more of these recovery things or something different?

Also depends on what type of vehicle they are fitted to, there are the earlier type [as shown in Templars' link] which were designed for the Series vehicles, and then there are the later type, designed for the Ninety / OneTen coil sprung motors.

On the later type, the ring is mounted further forward on the base plate.

Not much between the two types really, and they are interchangable between the two styles of vehicles, however if fitting the "series" versions onto a coil sprung vehicle, you will have to chop a little piece from the bottom spar of the radiator grille.
 
Not just fitted to ex MOD vehicles though, our old IIa had them fitted, and it was ex GPO. Still...a government department I suppose.

I should have hung on to them ;) (bad joke or what) when we sold the vehicle I mean....

I did keep the late IIa grille though, and have collected a few more since. Not seen any of the rings for a while though on stuff up here.

Nice pic Cherokee Graham. Whats the crest on the door?
 
This is my second ex mod '63 2a. Don't know much about it, my friend who I've gone halves with went to see it, I've only seen photo's, I can't wait to get it home and give it the once over!!!
