Well I am looking at some stuff for the hitch receiver for recovery, and don't know if it is better for a clevis type thing or just a hook? Which one works better or are they the same?

If you get in a pinch, you can use the .625 daimeter hitch pin to secure the strap.

I have two d-ring shackles on my truck. they are nice because you can move them to wherever you need. I bent the factory hooks on both of my taco's, but i have heard that you can get one's off of a chevy/gmc to fit up in the front too.

thats how i roll

i have heard that you can potentially bend the pin though, but you can cut it out later if needed, i have never had it bend and have done that several times

Yeah, depends on how hard you yank it. When you use a draw bar with a hook or clevis on the end, you distribute the load on the outside of the pin where it's supported better.

Here is something that I was talking about if anyone didn't understand.

This is the hook style i was talk about.


Of this type?

Clevis style is best. It is a lot more versatile for recovery.

this is the one i have except the one i have is made by procomp. i've been yanked out by this TONS of times and so far its been holding up pretty good. i'm looking to get the one made by WARN with the shackle on it though.

Don't get me wrong, I prefer a clevis. I just wanted to throw out another option for folks on a budget, or in a pinch.
