In other words the thing is bad@ss and very heavy duty. Love it! Feel sorry for anyone who might be a little late on the brakes and bump this thing.

Now I will have to put my hitch back on since I took it off to keep it from scraping last month at the off road park.

Thanks Tim!!!!!
haha thats pretty funny, me and one of my room mates call it the battering ram

Just out of curiousity, could you say tow a vehicle out of a ditch or mud hole with this thing if you needed to? I'm thinking if you wrapped a chain around the shaft portion but it would put some stress on the plate. Not saying I'd do something like that or anything... I'm guessing if it were you're only option it'd hold up fine, especially since I'm hearing the term 'battering ram' being thrown around as a description. Can't wait til mine shows up!

hmmm i would think this thing can handle it because of all the bends it has that strengthens it, i'm not going to suggest doing that though, what i would suggest is one of these for doing that

I see what you did there... marketing! I wouldn't make a habit of it since it's not intended for it, but every once in a while you see some poor soul off the road (especially now that winter is coming) that just needs a tug to get back on their way. I've always got a 10,000 chain with me also just in case, just no where on my truck to pull from besides the hitch.

ya it should be fine and if anything it would maybe bend an edge or somthing but that 3/16's steel is pretty damn strong
