After building the wrecker, I needed something for it to tow, as my grandson loves the truck and has been towing all sorts of things with it! As discussed in a previous topic, John and I had both thought a flat bed version of the wrecker truck would do the trick, so into the workshop I went!
I kept it simple and am quite pleased with the result, although it's quite heavy, so might need a slight mod to the wrecker to cope!

Outstanting.

Did you add something to the front of the flatbed for the tow hook to latch on to?

BadBob, I haven't added anything, yet, for the tow hook to latch onto, it just about hooks on to the chassis front and my grandson said he didn't want anything added! I am still toying with the idea of a removable hitch, though, as I don't like the way it works as is.
