This list can go on and on with a ton more of the same d ring hitch receiver options. But this list is a solid option of the best selling and most trusted names in the industry. They are all rated the same and will be able to help you in any off road situation where you need a pull. It will also help in many situations on the street, like helping to tow someone who broke down, or pull that tree out the front yard! Another thing to consider when buy these d ring hitches is a tow strap. All in all I hope this guide helped you locate the d ring hitch you have been looking for.
How much weight your vehicle can handle while it is towing a car or trailer is perhaps the most important factor that people will look at when they are deciding what type of truck hitch to purchase. As briefly stated above, shackle hitches are the most affordable way to get a hitch that can handle weight over 10,000 pounds. Since this is more than the normal weight that people will drag around, many people with heavy-duty needs will get this design.
I looked at several similar items before purchasing this one. Where the d-ring bolt goes thru, a couple of other brands had thin "ears" welded to the end of the mount. Not being a believer in factory claims of tow ratings, these didn't have the look of strength they claimed. This hitch appears to be milled from a solid piece of steel. If it indeed is 2 pieces welded together, they did an outstanding job in doing so. Unless I need to use a ball-mount hitch, I plan to leave this mounted in the receiver. To that end, I put some Loctite on the bolt before screwing it into the shackle, and then added a small cable tie from the bolt eye to the shackle. Barring a determined shackle thief, it should always be there if I need it. I can't imagine backing into something that would harm this hitch. The only complaint I have is how loose the mount is in the receiver. Several wrappings of duct tape just in front of the hitch pin hole quieted the rattle. A more snug fit would have earned 5 stars.

Just got my shipment in the mail today. I got the Recovery Tow Strap, Shackle Hitch Receiver, Premiu...m Bungee Cord Set, and 2 D-Ring Shackles. Every piece of equipment feels super solid, and I can’t wait to put them to the test with my Z71 Silverado. As an added bonus, the shipment came incredibly fast, and the shipping was free! I highly recommend this company and their products.
A fastener is a fastener, they don't have a preference for shear or tension. A grade 5 hitch pin is the same as a grade 5 bolt of the same diameter along the unthreaded length. What you have to watch using a bolt is that you either get it long enough that only the unthreaded part of the bolt is in shear or you adjust the bolt's rating down to the minor diameter compensate. For a 5/8-18 UNF the minor diameter is 0.556".
This hitch also comes with a hitch pin, shackle, and shackle cover, meaning that you will have everything necessary to break out your tools and install the hitch yourself. Additionally, you can take this part to any mechanic and they will easily be able to install it for you. Although a hitch like this is great since it allows you to shackle either horizontally or vertically at a considerably high towing weight capacity, it is also a tad noisier than ball mount hitches.
It just threads through the unit. The threads are going to be on this portion here that's going to hold that long bolt in place. Now let's go ahead and take a look at the measurement here of the opening that it gives us. Measuring this direction, at the widest point that's going to give us an opening of about 3-5/8". Measuring the opening from this portion here to the shackle, that's going to give us a measurement of about 4-5/8". I'll go ahead and show you real quick how that removes.
Their yields are 92 ksi and 130 ksi, so a hitch pin would be 27,600 lbf and 39,000 lbf before leaving their elastic region. Where the difference in grade 5 and 8 comes in is that grade 5 has min tensile yield of 120 ksi and grade 8 150 ksi, so each could potentially fail at 40,000 lbf or 50,000 lbf respectively, so obviously there is a broader region where a grade 5 bolt would bend (from 92 to 120 ksi) compared to a grade 8 (from 130 to 150 ksi). But notice that the grade 5 bolt fails before the grade 8 even hits its elastic limit.
This truck hitch from Vault Cargo Management comes with a sturdy shackle hitch design that comes with an impressive towing weight capacity and a price that everybody who is looking for a truck hitch can afford. With 10,000 pounds of towing weight capacity, there are few things that cannot be pulled by this truck hitch. The true test, then, would be to see if your truck can handle towing your cargo.
Polyester Recovery Straps stretch about 2% so they are pretty stiff. With Polyester recovery straps you have more of a stable, controlled yank when pulling someone’s truck out. With polyester recovery straps, you have a solid pull from the start but you don’t want to have a very large gap and delay in the pull. With polyester straps, you want short jerks or short pulls, not long driving starts. Polyester recovery straps are great for a quick pull if you are on stable ground and someone else is stuck and the distance is relatively close.
Another safety note is to weigh down the strap or winch cable, (especially a winch cable.) The reason is that if it was to snap the ends would whip around violently, injuring anyone in their way. A heavy blanket thrown over the strap or cable will do the job. Alternatively, if your recovery accessories come in a handy bag, fill it with something heavy and suspend it from the strap.
First question I had was if it was square tube or a solid chunk.. it is definitely a solid chunk of steel. This thing has some heft to it, which is a good feeling. I have a 3/4 avalanche that’s heavy. I used this thing right away. First day I watched a heavy loaded military hummer go in the ditch and get stuck, and they let me pull them out. I was right there, so they hadn’t called it in yet.

Assume the whole bar is well attached to the frame rails at each side (otherwise, it's definitely not good for a snatch recovery!). There is a huge difference between pulling on the receiver mount in the middle of the cross-bar, and pulling with a long harness attached to both ends. The direct receiver-mount pull will tend to bend the cross bar outwards, and pull the frame rails in towards each other (with a lot of leverage, on top of the many tons of force imparted by a snatch recovery).
