    One trick I have learned is to just insert your recovery strap into the receiver and stick the pin thru it... /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    make sure it'll fit before you go out, mines way too thick to put through there /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I've also used that method but when I was stuck with my 44" bogger equipped blazer something had to give. The strap broke and the shackle hit the rear tailgate. That was with 3 trucks hooked to it. By the way after that I could not get the pin out. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    I just grabbed up a 120,000 /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif pound shackle from a crane the other day when I was at work. (freebie) /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif That thing is freakin huge! /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif After that I went down and got a 2"x2" solid stock thats about 14" long. A few enormous holes later and I got one crazy lookin attachment point and it all cost me under 25 bucks. Ill rip apart my frame or tear my hitch off before anything back there goes. Ill take a pic of it soon, I love the way people gawk at it when they are behind me, its hillarious. It all goes nicely with my 60,000lb. strap. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    one of the shackle hooks I have is off a CAT, it looks like a freaking toilet seat only 3" round instead of flat,LOL

    I'm thining of putting a pindle hook on the rear bumper to use it.
