    I purchased a hitch receiver but it came with no pin. I’ll be making some trail runs for my first time in the snow this year. Stopped by the auto parts store and picked up a class 5 hitch pin. Can’t find any accurate sources online, but for the sake of recovery it seems like it should hold up but I wanted to run it by on here for some advice. Are class 5 hitch pins safe to run for recovery?

    Just the essentials and no extra fluff.
    Yes. Given the way the pin is loaded in double shear with no possibility of side loading or torquing it I would have no worries about the hitch pin.

    I just bought the same setup today. The powder coating on the parts is great.

    I think even a class III would be fine.

    You can't put anything larger than 5/8 in a 5/8 hole. That is as good as you're going to get for that set up.
