This heavy-duty trailer hitch accessory features a 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" shank, allowing it to fit hardworking class 5 trailer hitches, including any CURT Commercial Duty class 5 hitch. The entire unit is tested and rated for a straight-line pull of up to 13,000 lbs., making it a useful tool for vehicle recovery or tough jobs off-road and out in the field (weight ratings limited by lowest-rated towing component).
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.

Love this receiver, gives you another attachment point that you can count on. This is my main recovery point, and whenever I am in the trails I already have this attached with a D ring to my recovery strap. I used multiple times and is one of the strongest points to attach to. This also gives you the option to hook up just when you need it, and if you have other vehicles with a class 3 hitch you can transfer to any of them. This is a must if if have vehicles or equipment that could get stuck. No only that, but this is a fraction of the cost of purchasing a custom bumper with recovery attachment points.
With that being said though, it all depends on how you plan to use your 4Runner off-road and the types of terrain you see. Because the ARB Off-Road Recovery Snatch Straps have the most stretch, doesn’t mean they are the “best” it just means that they are truly designed for off-road recovery in pulling someone out. Again, like we said above in the material section, there are different recovery straps that perform better in certain situations.
Thoughts: I posted some pics so you can see the workmanship as well as the fit on my Tacoma. This is not tubed metal; it's casted and is solid (weighs about 9lbs). D-Ring fits perfectly within the block... no wiggle yet can freely spin. No paint chips either. Cannot wait to write a follow-up after my first use and am confident this will be a vital piece of my recovery kit for a long time.
It simply becomes an attachment point for a strap. This is a 2 and a half inch by 2 and a half inch class 5 receiver mount with a 7/8th inch shackle. It's going to be designed for 2 and a half inch by 2 and a half inch hitches. It's CNC machined, so it's a solid steel mount with a nickel plating for corrosion resistance. Then here at the shackle we're going to have the forged alloy steel shackle and that's going to have a zinc plating on it to resist rust and corrosion. The brake strength rating for this unit is 78,000 pounds and the working load limit is 13,000 pounds.
Like many others on here I took a chance on a small company I had never heard of. I was expecting good quality but was actually amazed at the fit and finish on these shackles. I don’t need a set of shackles that can support the weight of a fully loaded semi, but I have them. I purchased these to attach their 20’ and 30’ straps together if I ever needed to. ( be prepared right? ) if it says Rhino on it you can believe it will be good quality. Every piece of recovery gear I carry from my shackle hitch to the shackles that may be wrapped around your axle or frame says rhino on it and if it’s you sitting in the ditch you will be glad it does.
