The durability of the metal used in designing your truck hitch should be something that everybody takes into account before purchasing one. Since these products are typically made of metal, a common issue that could result is rust and corrosion. For this reason, many manufacturers will make their truck hitches coated so that they are naturally resistant to the weather and rust.
From that center one, we're looking at 1-1/2". Then from the one that's closest to the shackle. That's going to give us a measurement of 2-1/4". Now, if we take a measurement from the center of those hitch pinholes to the back of the shackle, the closest point, there, of the shackle . the closest pinhole to the shackle is going to be 1". That center one, right here up top, that's going to be 1-3/4, and to the very back pinhole, that's going to be about 2-1/2". Pretty simple installation. You'll need to determine which way you want this positioned in your hitch. Slide this piece into the receiver opening of the hitch and then secure it in your hitch using a hitch pin and clip or hitch lock. That's going to do it for today's look at part number BDW20239.

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.

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.

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.

You can see the large opening space that we have here. I'll take a measurement of that here in a moment. On the shackle itself it's going to give you the diameter which again is 1-1/2" and then on this side it's going to say WLL, that's working load limit, of 17 tons. This is CNC machined when it comes to the solid steel mount. You can see here on the back side solid steel construction. It has a really nice nickel plating on it so it's going to stand up really well against rust and corrosion too. You're going to notice that it's going to have a 5/8" pin hole here on the side as well as here on the top.

It seems that the negative reviews about size variations are from a few years ago, and based on the one I received, they seem to have the size right. The main block on mine (drawbar?) measures 1.90 inches wide and 1.97 inches tall. My 4Runner hitch measures 2.08 inches wide and tall, so there is about 1/8" of extra space between the receiver and the drawbar. Without a pin, there is quite a bit of play, but with the pin inserted, it's pretty snug.
I purchased a few items from this company and ended up returning them due to what I feel is a very deceptive marketing tactic they've chosen to use. It's clear from they're choice of labeling and branding that they're trying to imply that their products are proudly made in the USA, which couldn't be further from the truth. Even the labeling on the boxes is in my opinion deceptive as they state "Made in the PRC!" like people aren't going to figure out the the PRC is "The Peoples Republic of China". Your products might be decent, but I won't support your company simply based on the unethical marketing. If you want to make your products offshore, that's fine, but OWN IT!
