Re: D-rings vs Pintels as tow point
man, I am one to jerry rig just about anything and have done too much stupid stuff in my life, but if your snapping d-rings, and breaking stuff like that, its time to step back and do some re-rigging.... I realize there are times when you are stuck up the proverbial creek without a paddle, but, sometimes a simple re-evaluation of the situation is all it takes, rather than breakage. I like breakage too, makes for good stories, but it only takes once where someone gets mauled by flying debris and its not fun anymore.
As for the pintle hitch thing, yea they work pretty good, but when theyre not mounted on a one ton truck, it just makes you wonder "What in the heck!?!"
