    The locking hitch pin I was using on my gen 3 isn't quite long enough to lock on my new gen 4. Can anyone recommend a locking hitch pin that will work?

    Yes one comes with the truck or at least with mine it did. I wanted a locking one. I bought this and like it because with the o rings and cotter pin you can adjust the tension so it never rattles. I remove one o-ring for my hitch carrier and put it back on for my 2'' ball. Its always snug.

    yep, not cheap. Not that it makes it hurt less but it is much higher quality than the other locking hitch pins i've used before even the old one I had from this manufacturer. This one wrenches down real tight so it will have zero rattle. Hopefully only even need to buy one of them. It also fits on all my vehicles.
