If you already have a rear hitch receiver installed on your vehicle and simply want the most affordable means possible of installing a hitch onto your truck, this might be the option you are looking for. What is great about this truck hitch is that it can easily install on a hitch receiver and be ready to be used by your vehicle within an hour or so. Since its installation only requires the use of everyday hand tools, you won’t need to grab a power drill or anything which requires significant levels of effort.
Shackle hitches are used together with either a recovery strap, tow strap or snap strap or a winch cable. Its job is to provide a solid connection point so you can rescue a stuck vehicle. That could be one that's bogged down in mud, trapped in a ditch or perhaps stuck on a rock. With a winch and snatch block, (a type of pulley,) you can even do a self-recovery, pulling yourself free.
Every off-road vehicle breaks down from time to time. If you don't want to have a bolted-on tow hook on your off-roader, a D-ring hitch placed in your receiver will provide the high-powered towing you need. You can keep them in all the time like a regular ball hitch receiver or simply have it available when needed. Tow your new rig to your house or the shop or simply have it on hand as part of your recovery kit. Tow straps easily work with the tow hitch shackle. Simply unscrew the bolt then place the loop of the strap and bolt back together. Hand tightening should be all that you need to do to keep the strap in place. Don't turn the shackle when towing because you could bend the metal. Keep the tow strap on the flat part of the D-ring and keep you and your vehicle safe.
Smittybilt is a decent brand. They just take generic things and put their name on them and mark them up in price. Their D rings are no different than any others you'd find on Amazon. My buddy put some on his XJ Jeep and the red powdercoat they used was evidently just an epoxy or something else not UV-stable, and faded to pink in a short time. He bought generic replacements for them and they were identical to the Smittybilt.

With the Grip recovery strap mentioned above, it is a pretty stiff pull/ yank. With nylon, you are supposed to have a much softer yank. When you go from 0-20 and pull someone out, it tends to bounce everything around quite a bit. Then repeat this about 10 times in a day. Yeah, we have been there. The softer and easier you can get those pulls, the easier it is on everything, your back, your 4Runner, and the driver of the other truck.
I bought this gear and a tow strap from Rhino USA after watching multiple winter YouTube clips of trucks helping folks out of ditches on the east coast. Figured it would come in handy sooner or later. Turned out much sooner. On the start of my drive from Homer AK to Anchorage AK I drove past a van in the ditch with a bunch of kids trying to push it out. Another SUV tried pulling them out with a rope but only managed to entrench her tires more. I asked the gentleman if I could give it a try since I had gear and a truck. I attached the hitch receiver, tow strap and hook and pulled her out without much hassle. Thankful I bought this gear and hope to lend a hand to folks in the future.
