For your 2004 Chevy Avalanche the Rhino Rack roof rack part numbers # RREB137B, # RRRLKVA, # RREB-FK1 and # DK227 has been confirmed as a fit and would work well. Your sunroof wouldn't be an issue either. I would recommend keeping it closed since it will be very loud transporting a ladder up there from the wind noise. However, I have a better solution for you in terms of a roof rack for securing a ladder. Instead I would recommend the Rhino Rack HD bar roof rack part numbers # RB1375,...

Both run all the way through the shank. That's designed so you can use it whether it's in the vertical or horizontal mounting position. You can install it inside your trailer hitch receiver just like this or you can flip it to this position here and still install it inside the same hitch. You can use it in either the horizontal or vertical position. The shackle is removable. This portion right here is just like a large screw.
We are going to do follow up posts on all three of these straps. We are going to go get stuck on purpose and then feel what each of these straps can do and cannot do. For the most part, I have a feeling most of these straps will be the same in terms of towing but the Rhino Strap and ARB Recovery Strap might be a little more forgiving when yanking another vehicle from being stuck. Follow along and check back to see how these straps compare against each other for off-road recovery and general towing.
Also the bolt through a hitch receiver is in double shear, so unless you are driving a M35 and pulling out an M1A1 it's unlikely that you will stress a hitch pin or bolt to failure yanking out Hiluxes and Wranglers. The only disadvantage IMO to using the loop-and-pin method is convenience, stuffing the strap in can be a pain and sharp edges do need to be smoothed to keep abrasion minimized. But it's a perfectly legitimate and safe way to connect to a recovery point and does eliminate additional connections, which is good.
Solid, heavy, very thick coating. Look like they will hold up as advertized although I haven't had a chance to use them yet. Fit and finish is at least as good as higher-priced shackles I've seen at my local S&M Bondage store and I think they'll go well with that early 20th century farmhouse basement steam radiator theme or in any safe house as well. Finding chain and manacles to match might be a chore, but look around.
Just a few measurements we're going to go over real quick starting with the overall length, from very back to the front with the shackle extended out. That's going to give us a measurement of about 11 and a half inches. If we measured just the mount portion without the shackle, that's going to give us a measurement of about 8 inches. Really simple installation. This portion right here is going to be the portion that slides into your 2 and a half inch by 2 and a half inch trailer hitch receiver. You're going to push it in until you get your pin holes lined up with one another in whatever configuration that you want to use this.

There's no guarantee that the hitch rating is the same as the truck's tow rating. The base truck is rated for 3,500 lbs so it's possible someone puts on even as low as a class II hitch, which is 3,500 lbs rated. So you just have to know what everything is designed for. I'm not sure you can say the tow point could actually handle 10,000 lbs. Perhaps it's the frame that gives up at 6,500 lbs so trying to use 10,000 lbs in the hitch would mean the hitch itself would stay intact but pull the frame apart. It's maybe due to brakes, not exceeding the weight of the truck itself too much, stability. But that's all speculation. All you can say is you know 6,500 lbs is fine.

I too have their shackle hitch, tow strap and 2 d rings but still haven't needed to use them. Their quality appears to be good and supposedly made in USA. I liked their stuff enough to also purchase and just received today two of their tire pressure gauges since I broke the head off of an old pencil style one. Again quality seems to be pretty good.
I think it would be fine for a lite recovery, I've had to use that method winching a guy out of a snow bank(he had no recovery points). I don't see how much more different it is than using a receiver slug set up with a shackle. But I guess it depends on the quality of the pin. I too have seen it demonstrated as what to do instead of using the ball.
