    Would that be for if you wanted to tow with the tailgate down? Looks fine to me, only downside I can see is that you now have 2 hitch pins so 2 opportunities for failure.

    This can be found under details:

    Constructed of steel with forged collar and corrosion-resistant black powder-coat finish
    333-lb. load capacity
    Use of this product will reduce hitch capacity and vertical load capacity by 1/3

    Im at the Parker swap meet over the winter and this old snowbird is selling one of these. Its all rusted up and i say how much old timer. He looks at me and says $75.00. I told him i saw this on the interent for $45 and i offered him $40 for it. The old SOB wouldnt budge on his price. Just for Shits and giggles i offered him $60. He was as stubborn as a mule and still would not sell me that damn extension.

    This would if you have to launch a boat on a sandy beach

    Yes,

    We use them to be able to tow snowmobile trailers when we also have the sled deck installed. Never a problem.
