    Quick question for you guys. I have an 05 Access Cab 4x4 that I plan to use occasionally for snowplowing.

    The truck doesn't have the towing package. It just has the bumper towing setup. I'm trying to plan ahead for the day I get the truck stuck nose-first in a snowbank and it needs to get pulled out.

    I have a bunch of straps and D-rings, but I can't find a good attachment point for them in the rear of the truck.

    Any advice? Do I need to go buy a hitch?

    Thanks,
    Dave

    Would be better and more sturdy to get a hitch easy attachments to put in the hitch.

    If you want a solid point to tow from buy the hitch.

    Yeah, that's what I was thinking. Anybody like or dislike a particular hitch for this intended purpose? (recovery rather than towing)
