    I've always heard you can use a strap around your hitch pin if you don't have recovery points. Is there actually any scientific advantage for using a receiver mounted shackle verses just using the hitch pin? Seems like less parts to fail?

    From the opinions I've read, its simply ease of use and with the shackle mount it keeps the strap from rubbing on the hitch and fraying. I've personally been recovered using just a hitch pin and I was yanked pretty hard.

    Yep. Chinese plastic. It'll infect the water and kill you.

    If its Springville, AL made, like out of PVC, it'll likely get overpressurized by user error, and explode.

    This is merely an argument that everything made in USA is better yet we are all driving a foreign vehicle....

    Edit: This argument sounds like something off a Jeep forum...just sayin
