Agreed. But 4 to 5 times the cost?

Still, I can't see it being that much more expevsive.

It costs a lot to write "Viking".

That said, the Viking stuff is well-made plus has name recognition. Put those two things together and you get 'highest price'.

Exactly what I was thinking, but wanted some others to confirm cuz I know nothing.

Cosmic Charlie Jimbox - I had seen your posts and these photos in another thread, but was still not sure of which way to go. Thanks for responding and clarifying for me. Good info.

JIMBOX To many troubles using just the hitch pin-ie: strap size/rope size and the pull has to be STRAIGHT or the hitch edges will "FRAY" the strap-

I use a Lunnette, cause I do towing also and you can add a D-ring if you can't loop the strap-



This one uses the D-ring, but the D-ring is 180° out-



Even for light rope grabs-



Using the Lunnette, there's no sharp edges ANYWHERE and that will eliminate any stresses at the hitch-point !

TrueNorth Can't you just use the open reciever and hitch pin?

Even the oversized 3.5" ARB snatch strap eye fits inside the reciever throat, slip hitch pin through strap eye and start pulling.

Works on any 2" reciever and doesn't interfere with your depature angle.AKA last clunk.

daggo66 Wow, that is a big difference. Grab a 20% off coupon and get one from Harbor Freight.

Recovery Hitch

Why is the Viking Off Road recovery hitch sooooooo much more expensive than the Rampage recovery hitch? And while I'm on the subject - does anyone have a recommendation on one that they like?

Rampage Recovery Hitch

Viking Offroad Recovery Hitch
