I was looking for new and interesting crap for the truck on Amazon while I was supposed to be editing videos or working when I came across this:

I'm trying to figure out when this would be perferable to a D-ring shackle mount. You can only use it with tow straps and I was under the D-ring was the way to go. This seems less safe. It does look more badass though. Like the front end of a Warthog from Halo. Is this one of those ascetics over function things?

come on guys. its all wrong. that hook is supposed to be put on with the pointy side down to carve a groove in the earth when going down slope so as to facilitate the next person in seeing the line on a steep transition.
