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 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.
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.
It just threads through the unit. The threads are going to be on this portion here that's going to hold that long bolt in place. Now let's go ahead and take a look at the measurement here of the opening that it gives us. Measuring this direction, at the widest point that's going to give us an opening of about 3-5/8". Measuring the opening from this portion here to the shackle, that's going to give us a measurement of about 4-5/8". I'll go ahead and show you real quick how that removes.

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.

He's talking about the towing rating of the truck. The hitch is what it is. If you have the Toyota tow package (at least on my 2008) you got a class IV hitch, which is rated to 10,000 lbs towing, 1,000 tongue weight. That's because the truck is rated to tow 6,500 lbs. So they couldn't use a class III hitch, which is rated to 6,000 lbs, 600 tongue weight.
Most people who are looking for a hitch will typically get one of three different types of hitches: shackle hitches, ball mount hitches, or receiver mount hitches. People who simply want to have the highest weight capacity will normally purchase a shackle hitch since they have impressive towing weight capacities. However, if you would prefer the design of a ball mount hitch or receiver mount hitch, they are all viable options which are equally as easy to use once they are installed.
I recieved this a few days ago. It came in a nicely packed, sturdy box. After opening it up and seeing it for myself, I have to say the quality is awesome! Its a HEAVY shackle. The matte finish on the reciever end is superb (this piece must weigh about 7-10 lbs on its own). The shackle itself has a nice galvanized coating, and weighs about 6-7 lbs! Overall I think it is an awesome addition to any truck, looks great and has all the functionality that you'll probably need out of a shackle. 5/5 would reccomend! 457088

Whether you are moving, attaching a trailer to your truck, or simply preparing for the future, truck hitches are a great way of ensuring that your truck can always haul everything that it needs to. Truck hitches are a very effective tool that can be used for hooking up your truck to a separate trailer or anything that has wheels and the opposite truck hitch for connecting it. Although there are many benefits that can come with owning your own truck hitch, many people are turned off by the ridiculous prices that some outlets offer.

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.
