I have a lunette ring you can use for recovery, it looks like THIS except goes vertical rather than horizontal.

Guess I did not make my link very visible.

D-ring Hitch

This is similar to what I have.

I did the trail out of Sour Grass which is off out of Dorrington off hwy 4 on Sat. it was great and the water in the river was FLOWING. Today we had about 10" of new snow, so not sure when Deer Valley will be passable.

I was looking for a use of my old stock tow hooks from my front bumper...this guy below mounted a set on his frame in the rear. Might be a cheap option
since tow hooks look like they go for $10. The hitch is just an extra piece to drag and get caught up on something, you may as well ditch it imho.

I did the same thing. I pulled a few of you guys through that mud hole with it last year.

So I'm assuming that all hitch pins are rated for recovery? Or are some weaker than others? Do I need to see if it tells me what they are rated for?

With this method I'd have to remove the hitch, but the hooks, drill, and after the trip, remove the hooks and put the hitch back, wouldn't a D-ring in the receiver be easier? I'm open to all ideas at the time and am not in any hurry to finalize anything.

EDIT: Isn't that you in the video thumbnail getting pulled out yourself?

No. That's me winching myself out. I was in the lead on that part of the trail. After I got out, that mud hole was a lot easier.

Leave the actual hitch bolted to the Jeep. Remove the slide in portion that normally has a ball on it and replace that with either a lunette like I listed or a dring like scott posted. Don't worry about the pin, if you shear off a 5/8's thick pin getting unstuck we're all in a world of hurt.

Thats what I wanted to know, that any 5/8's pin would work, thanks, maybe I'll pick up a spare.
