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.

The hitch sliders are CNC-machined from a single piece of solid billet of 6061-T6 aluminum, and you can get yours in an assortment of finishes, including black, red, and polished.

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.
