    Well, I got this for Christmas and have been deciding what to do with it.

    Now I just need to go get stuck and try it out.

    So does anyone know a good place to get inexpensive recovery gear? (like a snatch block, short straps, etc.)

    Looks cool. I have that exact thought in mind as well. Can you get me some pics of how you attached your hitch. I just brought home a used hitch and plan on chopping it up to fit inside my frame and have the reciever come out thru the license plate. (It will be hinged)

    Looks nice, wish it were mine. Just be very carefull side loading that hitch mount. With only a single mount, you'll twist it with very much side load...

    Yeah, I am a bit worried about that, but I only have $20 invested in the cradle so I can afford to experiment a little.
    Here are some pics of how I made it and installed it.
    I don't know if it will be strong enough or not but I guess I'll find out.
    Here are the install pics, sort of.
