Ball and pin tow hitch.


Recommended Posts

Need to put one of these on the back of the jeep.


Want a good quality one for obvious reasons but huge variations in price.


Any horror stories out there with snapped ones or any that have performed way above and beyond what could be expected. I would suspect there'll be a few on here who've given them a decent test at some time!

I witnessed a rear cross member ripped off of a 110 once. That was with a big strap pinned onto a Dixon Bate hitch. I'll never use anything else now.


The only down side to them is that they stick out further than most. Not a great way to be on a pickup that has the tailgate lowered a lot.

I went for a bradley auto jaw on the new pick up, sick of wrestling with tight pins when dropping of at the end of the day, usually in the dark / wet. I also hitch up mainly on my own in a less then flat yard and once my reversing was up to snuff, I've found it really good.

Only downside is that the rocker needs a little grease every 6 months or so to keep it slick, depends how much time you spend with the hitch covered in muck.
