    I've made a couple of these so far and am curious how many of you would be interested in buying these if i was to make a bunch. They are made from 2 inch solid steel that fits perfect in the hitch and then the shaft with the shackle on it is 1 1/8" thick. if your interested throw your name on the list and I'll see how many i should make if theirs an interest. they are all hand made by my self.

    I'm thinking price will be 40$ for just the hitch part and 50$ for hitch and a 4.5 ton 3/4 shackle.

    shipping will be in the smallest usps flat rate boxes and i think those are 5$

    PM me with any questions or if you would like yours to be different

    May be none of my business, but you should be really careful pulling on that shackle using a tow strap with hooks. If something happens and that strap snaps it could do some serious damage. Just be careful, that is why I only use tow straps that do not have hooks.

    As for the hitch shackle and receiver, I wish you would have posted this up a month ago before I bought my new one. It does not seem too solid, but it will have to do for now. Yours look great and strong.

    Yeah, its my old vehicle tow strap I use for towing broke down cars/trucks off the street, I have a much nicer 3"x30' 27,000lb rated one for actual off road recovery that just has loops on the ends. :cool:

    this is the first one i ever built and the piece that the shackle goes through is a little smaller than i wanted but still damn strong. its 7/8" thick instead of 1 1/8". it has a 3.5 ton 1/2 inch shackle and i'm gonna sell it to who ever wants it first for 25$ since its not as beefy as the ones i'm doing now.

    I learned the hard way on those straps. Had one break in half at the hook part, well the other half came through back windows like a bullet.

    Yea, I somewhat figured this was not your offroad tow strap. Cannot be too safe though. I will definitely be in touch if mine takes a crap.
