I just stick the end of the rope in the hitch and pin that.

It's the pin that matters anyway get a grade 8 one

Though that method typically works no problem, the issue arises when you're pulling at an angle or pulling something that is more stuck than you thought. The receiver and shackle reduce the amount of point loading and thus bending stress on that bolt during a pull that isn't exactly inline with the long axis of the truck. Just picture it like a bridge. The bolt spans the gap and supports the load just fine, but it wants to bend in the center. The block of steel in the middle eliminates the bending that wants to occur and the limiting factor becomes shear strength of the bolt. As it turns out, the shear strength of that bolt is much higher than its strength in bending.

Bottom line is that the grade 8 bolt method will probably work for many recovery situations, but when you're stuck between a rock and a hard place or sinking into a mud hole, it makes me feel much better knowing that my $35k truck is getting pulled from a big hunk of (American) steel and not just a single bolt. If you've ever heard a bolt or something steel fail when overloaded, you'll understand my fear. Scary stuff.

I machined mine from 2" solid bar stock, weighs a ton but indestructable. Most aftermarket ones use cheap chinese shackles also. Best to get a good forged one. Capacity is much greater.

Scott,
I bought a Viking offroad shackle hitch, its made in the US and I like that there are 2 sets of holes in the block so I can orient the d-ring horizontally OR vertically depending on the direction of pull

That's another solid product. Good choice.
