Mile Marker comes in at spot number three because of its cool orange color and multi hole configuration. Its prolly the most expensive on this list, with the same features and towing capacity as the others. It has a 11,000 pound working load. And you can insert the hitch two different ways, which will make your d ring shackle go vertical or horizontal. A cool added feature to help you get out of a sticky situation. Made for 2″ receiver and 3/4″ d-ring like the others.
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.

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 works by mounting it directly to the frame of the vehicle behind you, allowing the two vehicles to work almost as if they were one. However, keep in mind that you should not tow heavy-duty weights or vehicles with this vehicle. Since there is not a clear weight capacity with this hitch, it is best used for loads that are lighter than the vehicle you already use.
I had a bunch of nasty thorny bushes that I could not even get close to that I lassoed with a slip not then yanked the crap out of them with the Smittybilt 29312b attached to my Toyota FJ. I then pulled out some old stumps and some huge fence and fence posts on the side of a hill that were buried in concrete by some crazy person who had the property before me. No other method I could think of would have the possibility of working and the pro guys with bobcats estimate was over a thousand dollars. I even had all four wheels of the FJ spinning on a concrete drive yanking and that is some kind of force.

If you want a shackle hitch that can pull impressive weight loads with ease, then this should be one of your top options. With an towing weight capacity of 4-3/4 tons, many people simply won’t even need to pull this much weight. However, being prepared for the worst is better than no preparation at all. This is one of the reasons why many people will get a top-quality truck hitch like this one which boasts a considerably high towing weight capacity.

Whoever said hitch capacity is full of it. In a straight line pull you can pull until you reach shear strength of bolts or bending strength of the hitch. Both are much greater than your truck's GVW. Either choice is fine. There is already an attachment point on the rear though that does just fine. 2X GVW on strap. There are 100 threads on this exact topic.
I recieved this a few days ago. It came in a nicely packed, sturdy box. After opening it up and seeing it for myself, I have to say the quality is awesome! Its a HEAVY shackle. The matte finish on the reciever end is superb (this piece must weigh about 7-10 lbs on its own). The shackle itself has a nice galvanized coating, and weighs about 6-7 lbs! Overall I think it is an awesome addition to any truck, looks great and has all the functionality that you'll probably need out of a shackle. 5/5 would reccomend! 457088
Traction might be a problem at times, but we can guarantee you that towing capacity won’t be! With a whopping 10,000 pounds of towing capacity in this shackle hitch receiver, you’ll have plenty of power to pull your vehicle out of even the hairiest of situations. This D-ring shackle hitch has the hitch pin hole positioned so that we get the maximum about of strength out of every ounce of steel we’re using.

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.
This is a great tow hitch to consider purchasing if you are already the owner of a ball mount and need a little extra kick to your towing capacity. As we all know, shackle hitches tend to carry a little more weight than their ball mount counterparts. This is why many will consider them to be the best truck hitches for towing. Since this one in particular comes with resistance to rust, thanks to its rugged powder coating, it is also guaranteed to last a longer time than one without these protections.
Nice looking piece, what you would expect from a simple shackle hitch reciever. Shackle itself also a nice piece... down fall is the extremely loose fit in a 2" reciever. Planned on running this full time as a front recovery point in my Trail Gear tube bumper but it rattles and clanks around over any sort of bumps. Ended up purchasing a different shackle hitch reciever for less here on amazon that came with shackle, hitch pin, shackle, polyurethane shackle isolators and it fit nice and snug. If the fit was better I would have been happy with this purchase. Ended up needing to use it and scuffed the finish otherwise I would have returned it.
