NONONONO!! This is asking for an accident to happen, i cant remeber the site but there is a pic of a trailer ball snapping off and flying through some guy's front window when they used it for a tow point. Bad idea, not my idea of a fun way to die. You could look at getting a custom bumper made up which incorporates rear towpoints. Im sure lots of the guys on this board could do that for youOriginally posted by KelownaZR2:
. If you want you can also try to find a trailer ball that will fit in the rear bumper, but it could still slip pretty easy.
Perfect. Look for a hitch that uses as many bolts as possible. The stronger the betterOriginally posted by ZR2Styln:
I did some research and here is what I came up with that would work on my truck.
Going to look at getting a class III 2" Hitch Reciever and I found a local company that sells a Clevis type attachment for that type of hitch that is rated at 4 tons.
Please provide input thanks.
What is the company that sells the Clevis attachment for the 2" reviever? I have been looking for one.Originally posted by ZR2Styln:

Probably going to go with Durahitch. It's class III and it's rated at 5000lbs where as most are rated 3500lbs.Originally posted by Chris S:

Avoid "universal fit" hitches.
Wasn't planning on using a trailer ball as recovery point.Originally posted by Greg:
A couple of things:
A trailer ball is NOT a recovery point. If that was the only attachment you had, I would refuse to recover you. Not worth my life or damage to my truck.
Doug at TrailMax is currently recovering from a dirt bike accident, and will be unable to do anything for a while; he has a broken arm and two broken wrists. http://media-north.com/4wd/dougwrist.jpg
Hahaha, that was the "pretty" arm. Yep, sucks big time.Originally posted by Dax's Bad ass Jeep:
ewwwww, I would chew my arm off before I let some doctor screw a stainless steel wrist bone into my arm! that has GOT to suck.
