Well double check that, Class III or above are going to have the 5/8's if for some reason you have a 2" receiver and it's only rated at like Class I or II, it's possible it would only have a 1/2 pin, but I doubt that. I don't think I've ever come across a 2" receiver with a 1/2" pin.

same thing happened at KOH, except it was a winch line hahaha.. and the winch line got stuck around the wheel and the guy with it around his wheel pulled the winch line guy up the obstacle. Then it snapped. Pretty funny if you ask me

Yes, I am going. I think I have 3 straps so it won't be a big deal.

You'll be fine.

Bob, yjjustforme (Jacob) picked up a strap from HF for like $15. I've never seen the ones like he got in the Roseville store though. I got a Smitty one at the Outdoorsman Expo show from 4 Wheel Parts for $18.

I think you could use yours in a pinch, but we should have enough of them floating around there shouldn't be an issue. That picture of Ben buried in the mud is the only time I've seen any type of recovery on DV. (I shouldn't have said that, now I'll get stuck)

You don't remember the year before, with Cmar? There were a few last year that I had to drag out of that mud hole, including Derrick.

Just wanted to thank the guys who suggested the D-ring for the hitch, I had to use it today and pull my family out of a rut. Wanna be off-roaders.
