^^THISS.

Any nasty hit where I genuinely thought I bent or broke something has always been the hitch. Slide off a rock? Bang the hitch. Descent with sudden drop off? Bang the hitch. Backing up without a spotter? Bang the hitch.

X2 .. Allthough, if it wasn't there something else would have to take the hits I suppose. Gas tank skid?

Mostly air. If I travel and need more cargo room, then I use a basket.

This happened to my buddies bumper some years back coming out of the pipes at the Bandlands in Indiana. The metal pipe broke when his rear tires were about to drop out and the bumper took a pretty hard hit. A few whacks with a BFH leveled it right back out

A monster hook. Similar to this but in black:



Paired with ACE's rear pro bumper I shouldn't be too stressed if someone rear-ends me or wants to have a fender bender with me in a parking lot.

I saw a guy with a winch mounted on a hitch on the back of his rig. Has anyone else seen or done this?

I have a front receiver that I use for my snow plow. It's a homeowner plow and uses no hydraulics.

That is awesome, how much did you have to modify it? BTW nice trike, I used to have a Tecate that I restored & traded for a rail buggy. I also had a 250r that was a beast...But then I got into Jeeps & never looked back.

Oh, I get it.. The one on top has a busted leg, and the one on bottom is carrying him to get medical attention.

Those 1Up racks are awesome. Did you have to get an extension of any kind to clear the spare?

The best rack out there.
Had to use a Hidden Hitch that extends further then stock. An extension would work if your running a stock receiver.
