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.
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.
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.
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.

While it is good to have a D ring receive hitch in your Jeep just in case, it is always preferable to avoid a nasty situation in the first place. You should avoid driving in unknown areas or driving over something with an uncertain depth. You also need to drive slowly when possible. However, even the most careful drivers may end up stuck in the mud at one point or another. A D ring hitch is useful, but it is also good if you always carry a first aid kit, jack and shovel in your Jeep, too.
