    I think they super unnecessary. Before I had a bumper, I put a shackle receiver in my hitch. Drug that thing and slammed on it all the time with no problems. All that’ll happen with one is you’ll get hung up more since it hangs a little lower.

    Stuff that my wife thinks I don't need.
    Randy hath spoken! This sounds sad, but I was more worried about dragging the Line-x off and then making rust. I will opt not to get a hitch skid. I do have a shackle receiver around here somewhere from the days before I had bumpers.

    I ended up buying a "hybrid" I guess, the Sterling Wild West Hitch Pro...basically it's like a long hitch and a shackle hitch had a baby. AKA an elongated shackle receiver (but has 3 sets of pin holes for how far in/out you want it from the receiver). Figured tuck it all the way in and you're not too terribly further out than a regular shackle hitch. If bumper skid is needed, just bump it out a notch or two for more departure angle protection (since we all aren't @bob'dTacos)[​IMG]

    I haven’t seen that before, but it does add length which isn’t always good.

    edit: (my post submitted while i was typing)

    how far out does it stick on the closest setting? It’s nice to have a recovery point on the back that’s removable, so it is definitely a useful piece.

    Measuring from the end to the front of the pin in the closest to end hole was 8 3/4" to the angled end, it sticks out the same distance as my 4" drop hitch I use for the trailer.

    First time posting in forever and I have a quick question for the more knowledgeable ... Just bought SCS SR8 in 17x8.5 -10 offset and will be running 275/70/17 C Wildpeaks. Will I rub or need a CMC and if so, anyone local that can do one?

    Also will have stockers for sale soon w 265/75/16 Wildpeaks that have 23k miles on them if anyone is interested.

    Lastly, any mod days coming up? If not, I wouldn't mind hosting one myself soon. I have a few things I want to install like a pop n lock and rhino roof rack. Also contemplating getting ICON RXT leafs and JBA UCAs.

    Edit: I'm running bilstein 6112 at 4/5 setting.

    Shouldn't rub at all. I have a wee bit more offset and the same size tires. I also have JBA control arms. The tires have never touched anything.

    Wow, it's been dead in here today.

    I had a shitty $100 grill and I wanted to get better at grilling. The weather has been nice so I've been spending more time outside grilling shit. After two weeks, I decided I wanted something better and got the Weber Spirit II E210. This thing is fucking awesome. Tonight I grilled up some brats and peppers and onions and it was probably my favorite meal so far. I've been cooking pork chops, steaks, burgers, chicken breasts, various veggies, etc. Learning by googling and doing and so far it's working well.

    Tonight's dinner.

    Morning everyone. Happy Friday before a long weekend!

    Just putting a feeler out- my buddy just got a new tundra pro and is selling the stock Michelin's 275/65/18. Doesn't have a price yet, but will be off the truck Sunday.
