That tow bar is made from a bunch of large turnbuckles that are usually used to tension utility poles! Not exactly the best thing for welding. Not only that they are welded to the original shackles on top of the shackle so the force will be on an angle. That is trouble just waiting to happen all the way around. The tires are Euro cut and the stones in the lot say Germany or more likely England. Also note the home made light bar.

Wow that M151 looks like it is painted in the early cammo pattern called Dual-Tex.
