Default Tire Size and pintle location

I think one of the major contributing as to the location of the pintle in line with frame or under the frame will be in the size of the tires the truck was originally fitted. Example my 1941 C60L has the pintle mounted between the frame rails and came equipped with 10:50 x 16 tires, while my 1942 C60S has the pintle mounted to brackets below the frame rails it came equipped with the 10:50 x 20 tires. Result the pintles are basically at the same height.
