Where can i get these? I didn't see them on Jeep.com.
I agree, and thats what I did tooThe hitch actually doesn't come that far to the sides to be in the way, but I do like the shackle a lot better ( forgot about the shackle ) Thanks
The Rugged ridge is nice, but if you are looking for "cheap", you may want to check these out. Doesn't look like much, but it is what most people in my jeep club run, and they are tough. If you have a D-ring, this may be a less expensive way to go, but the rugged ridge and others come with a d-ring.I went with the shackle too, as I have a hitch. This is the cheapest price I could find.
For those of us who can only be towed from the rear, I think we usually hook the tow strap on, and throw it thru the back window. That way, it is just a matter of poppin the window, and pull out. No need to hook and unhook the tow strap.Out of all of the ones I ever used, I really like the receiver hook that Chaos has. (pic on left in his last post) It's a one piece design which takes the bolted or welded hook missle out of the equation. I don't care for the hoop or d-rings. If the d-ring is under water or in the mud good luck getting a strap on it.

GPmitten posted a event or picture thread recently, and the commanders in the posts were doin just that.
When Chaos pulled me out he used his hook because I am using a loop, as can be seen in the above pic, and it was just easier for him to change to his hook and use my strap. I don't have a hook for the reciever, but am thinking of getting one. There is a video of that, but not a pic I know of.In the video Chaos' son took GP and Chaos were strapped rear to rear. I thought we did have a pic. Anyway, I can see the benefits of having the strap attached to the rear and hung through the back window, but I also look at it this way. You still have to go to the rear to get the strap out, so whats another 2 feet?
