Question JKR Towing an M101A2/A3 with a Pintle Hitch

So I might be purchasing an M101A2/A3 in the next couple of days and I'll be towing it with my JKR. Yes, I know this trailer weighs in at a hefty 1200+ lbs and my towing capacity is only 2000 lbs.

My concern is that I still need to acquire a pintle hitch and I've run into a couple of different types out there.

Is there a specific size that I need to purchase?
Or is there really only one size (except for a combination ball/pintle)?

Does anybody out there know the height of the lunette on these trailers? I was hoping to purchase an adjustable pintle hitch so I can change the drop/rise as my JKR is modified. (It's still stock at the moment.)

TIA for you answers.

You should be able to get the info on the desired height from the seller. As for the type of pintel hitch, ask the seller if the can measure the thickness of the metal around the ring at the end of the lunette to ensure that the claw of the hitch will provide enough clearance for proper action while towing.
