Sorry no idea. Mt.8 is a Japanese company and a local dealer (here in Hong Kong) imported a load of their stuff.
Some Mt.8 stuff available on www.nengun.com site.

I don't think the receiver style hitch has type approval on a Jimny in our market?

As mentioned, it was brought in from Japan by a local Hong Kong garage.
However, the Suzuki OEM hitch is a similar receiver style over here - what is on offer from Suzuki in the UK?

We can either get a fixed flange bolt on ball type, a fixed swan neck ball or a detachable swan neck that is specific to a particular vehicle and not interchangeable with things like a winch mount or recovery point or anything else that could be considered useful. Some manufacturers have type approved receiver hitches on some of their models like Jeep for instance but they are not common or very well supported in our after market. It sucks.

Thanks, sorry missed that you were in HK.

Have been looking for a tow bar for almost a year now. Have seen the one in NZ before, but sadly not much use in the UK.

The factory one doesn't have the additional recovery points and the swan neck is bespoke to Suzuki it seems. I'd like to be able to use a couple of different hitches. Which this won't support.
