Since a lot of rigs handle work and tow duty, it’s not uncommon for an off-roader to have a two inch receiver hitch out back.
But since it’s placed so low on the vehicle, off-roading often puts that receiver hitch in harm’s way of rocks and other trail obstacles.
….And once you bend or distort that hitch receptacle, it can be dang-near impossible to get it back into the right shape.
So you can consider a 41.22 Hitch Slider cheap insurance against a frustrating repair.
Thanks to a smooth underside skid plate, a 41.22 Hitch Slider lets your two inch receiver hitch glance off a hard obstruction, protecting the integrity of the hitch receptacle in the process.
Better still, the slider serves as a centralized recovery point too, thanks to a hole that’ll fit a D-ring or soft-recovery shackle. It’s got a certified breaking strength of 37,170 lbs. and a 15,000 lb. load rating.
41.22 says its sliders will fit most two inch receivers, but the receiver must be the lowest point of your bumper. The slider will accommodate a 0.625 in. receiver pin. Popular applications include the Jeep Gladiator and Wrangler, Toyota Tacoma and 4Runner, and Chevy, Ram, and Ford trucks.
