I used to make a SS stinger for the 1.250" receiver.


But I stopped making them.

I also made a tow loop.


But I don't make it anymore. Perhaps if you used a system that was not susceptible to heat, with a Samson 3/8" Amsteel (rated above 15,000 lbs and floats) tow strap.

By the way those tires would not last in the back country of Idaho.

Never had an issue with heat on the rope. I’ve used this thing thousands of times towing everything from RZR’s to atv’s and even a small Nissan truck one time
