These might be the best off-road recovery straps you can buy. ARB makes some of the best products on the 4×4 market, including the well-known ARB Deflator and Inflator along with a handful of other products.  If you are looking for the best product out there, hands down this is going to be your best option. Because the ARB is made of 100% nylon means it has the most elasticity of these other brands.
It's made from a solid steel construction. It's going to offer three pinhole locations, so you have one right here and then two on this side. That's going to allow the shackle to be used horizontally or vertically, and it's got the short mounting shank. That's going to enable the shackle to sit pretty close to the receiver that's mounted onto the vehicle. We have a screw pin design.

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.
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.

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.

I too have their shackle hitch, tow strap and 2 d rings but still haven't needed to use them. Their quality appears to be good and supposedly made in USA. I liked their stuff enough to also purchase and just received today two of their tire pressure gauges since I broke the head off of an old pencil style one. Again quality seems to be pretty good.
As a result, we have prepared this page in order to help truck owners find the right hitch that will suit their needs perfectly without draining their wallet. In any case, there is no reason that you should pay too much for a truck hitch. For your reference, we have carefully picked the best truck hitches for towing so that you can explore the top options before reaching a purchasing decision.
This means that you should be cautious before you whip out the money that is truly required for getting a truck hitch. If you find a high-quality hitch that is anywhere between $20-50 many people might think that they are of a lower quality than what a local retailer has. However, the reality is that many local retailers purchase products like these and then mark up the price to local customers. Just keep in mind that the market is always subject to change and the price can rapidly evolve out of this range.

Finding that many off-road accessories didn't perform as advertised, they decided they could do better, and so in 2015 they started Rhino USA. Today, the company they founded offers a range of high quality accessories for those serious about enjoying the great outdoors. They offer a number of offroading products, including recovery straps, D Ring Shackles, Motorcycle Accessories and More. Check out their Online Store.

The walls offer vertical load support, for easy storage and access to the rear of your vehicle Lockable lid minimizes the need for cargo nets or tie-downs Deters theft when used with a padlock (sold separately) with a 3/8" diameter shackle


There's no guarantee that the hitch rating is the same as the truck's tow rating. The base truck is rated for 3,500 lbs so it's possible someone puts on even as low as a class II hitch, which is 3,500 lbs rated. So you just have to know what everything is designed for. I'm not sure you can say the tow point could actually handle 10,000 lbs. Perhaps it's the frame that gives up at 6,500 lbs so trying to use 10,000 lbs in the hitch would mean the hitch itself would stay intact but pull the frame apart. It's maybe due to brakes, not exceeding the weight of the truck itself too much, stability. But that's all speculation. All you can say is you know 6,500 lbs is fine.
Today we're going to be taking a look at part number BDW20181. This is the Bulldog Big Dog Shackle. This is the huge oversize shackle that's going to give that truck a nice, big truck look. This portion right here is going to slide into your 2" by 2" trailer hitch receiver. It's going to be great for work trucks that use very large straps. It's going to feature an 1-1/2" diameter forged alloy steel shackle. It has a really nice zinc plating on it so it is going to stand up really well against rust and corrosion.

I looked at several similar items before purchasing this one. Where the d-ring bolt goes thru, a couple of other brands had thin "ears" welded to the end of the mount. Not being a believer in factory claims of tow ratings, these didn't have the look of strength they claimed. This hitch appears to be milled from a solid piece of steel. If it indeed is 2 pieces welded together, they did an outstanding job in doing so. Unless I need to use a ball-mount hitch, I plan to leave this mounted in the receiver. To that end, I put some Loctite on the bolt before screwing it into the shackle, and then added a small cable tie from the bolt eye to the shackle. Barring a determined shackle thief, it should always be there if I need it. I can't imagine backing into something that would harm this hitch. The only complaint I have is how loose the mount is in the receiver. Several wrappings of duct tape just in front of the hitch pin hole quieted the rattle. A more snug fit would have earned 5 stars.
Next up is the MOTORMIC Shackle Hitch Receiver. The reason I like this one is because of the added accessories that comes with the d ring hitch. They include a hitch receiver pin and also a red isolator so this thing doesn’t clank when hitting the trail. Rated at 11,000 Pounds, more than double the weight of standard truck or Jeep! Designed for rescue in any kind of situation with a multi point mounting like the Mile Marker. The 2-inch Receiver Hitch by MOTORMIC is designed to allow the ¾-inch D-Ring to swing horizontally or vertically for extensive recovery anchor point options. All in all a good choice because of the added bonus items! 
The Grip recovery strap is made of polyester, which is typically material that would be used in a tow strap. But, it is not uncommon to see recovery straps made of polyester as well or a combination of Polyester and other materials. Grips recovery strap is weather resistant like most recovery straps out there and is designed to stand the test of any weather condition you can throw at it.

I would spend a little (ok a lot) extra for the Factor55 bling Hitchlink merely for its weight difference from something like the Warn. Southeast Overland in Seneca has both tow and snatch straps. Steve can tell you exactly what you should get based on what you tell him are your needs. He teaches recovery courses for the off road world as well as running his shop.

Very sturdy hitch hook. I put it on my truck because my friend had one (on the advice of his father) to minimize rear end accidents. I was rear ended last month, and it did its job. Yes, my truck had damage that was fixed by the other guy's insurance company, but I think it kept the damage to a minimum, and sadly damaged the other guy's radiator. Also, when I got high centered in the snow last winter, the guy who winched me out attached to this and dragged me to safety. This is a basic, very solid, unit. I expect to keep it for the life of my truck.

Searching for the best truck hitches for towing requires that you carefully consider the price of the model, the towing weight capacity, the type of hitch, and the durability of the materials used in the hitch. If all of these things blend together in a fashion which results in the best possible towing hitch for your personal needs, there is no reason you should hold back on your decision. However, always be sure to purchase something only if you can afford it.
A shackle hitch receiver is the perfect tow hitch for the recreational off-roader or when you need to tow in a pinch. They fit in most 2” receivers to give you the pulling power you need to tow. The extensive selection at 4 Wheel Parts has everything you need to outfit a recovery kit for the hard-core enthusiast or simply have some better safety gear for your truck. Be prepared with heavy-duty receivers, straps and winches.

Their yields are 92 ksi and 130 ksi, so a hitch pin would be 27,600 lbf and 39,000 lbf before leaving their elastic region. Where the difference in grade 5 and 8 comes in is that grade 5 has min tensile yield of 120 ksi and grade 8 150 ksi, so each could potentially fail at 40,000 lbf or 50,000 lbf respectively, so obviously there is a broader region where a grade 5 bolt would bend (from 92 to 120 ksi) compared to a grade 8 (from 130 to 150 ksi). But notice that the grade 5 bolt fails before the grade 8 even hits its elastic limit.
Third, think about whether you want one hole or two through the receiver block for the hitch pin. The advantage of two is that it lets you insert the shackle hitch with the bolt either horizontal or vertical. The difference depends on whether there's any height difference between the two vehicles. If the vehicle being rescued is down in a ditch for example, it may be helpful to insert the shackle with the bolt horizontal to get some vertical movement.
