Steel Soldiers now has a few new forums, read more about it at: New Munitions Forums!
The whole hitch mounting design is weak.I read somewhere that it was rated at 3,000 lbs., but I have never pulled anything with it. However when the vehicle was stripped for painting and the bumpers and hitch removed for sandblasting, I noticed the hitch was held on by only non-graded bolts. I replaced these with grade 8's. I don't know why this was done, but it could have something to do with all the variations in the load limit listed above.
On towbars?I put 33 inch tires on mine, 900 pounds in the bed, and towed a 2005 Huyndai to Memphis from San Diego. slow going with the gearing, but she handled great.
