C3R - Class 3 Recovery
Why? If you have a hitch then you don't need to spend 65 bucks to bolt them on, and for what?
Just askIng if anyone has tried them.
Also I don't like the center shackle look
I heard it's not a good idea to use your hitch for recovery.
Personally I would've thought it would be fine - just read somewhere that it's not
Thanks. I'll look into that.
Edit*. Read a thread on another 4x4 site. Basically says as long as your not using a snatch block it's "ok" but the tow bar is for towing not recovery and should be done in only extreme cases
Those look awesome!!
Looking at my hitch...
If I used it for a recovery point, I would be OK pulling on it at it's rated load if I pulled straight in line with it. Not up, not down, and certainly not sideways.
If I pulled sideways, it looks like it would fold like cheap lawn furniture.
I've recovered a few vehicles with the trailer hitch. No problems.
