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.
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.

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!
