Hitch size? 2" square?

I'd like to get the Rhino hitch step:

Anyone know what size hitch the overland has? Is it standard? Seems 2" is the most common size I've seen.

thx

Re: Hitch size? 2" square?

Thank you.

I'm really interested in getting this for the rear bumper protection.. not when I park (cause we got sensors and a cam) but when I'm parked and other careless folks boink me... uh oh..

Any opinions on this?

p.s. wish there was some nice, contoured bar like this for the front that wouldn't look like those bull bars.

To each his own, but those will kill the look on new fascia.

Re: Hitch size? 2" square?

Yeah, they'll certainly hurt their front end with the height we sit at...

oh, any ideas on the pin size? I want to get a hitch lock as well..

I think they come in 1/2 and 5/8.

1/2" also check out etrailer.com i got all my stuff there pretty cheap.. you shouldn't bother with a pin, get a lock! you don't want someone running off with it by simply taking out the pin

Re: Hitch size? 2" square?

Yeah, its a pin lock.. not just a pin.

Are you sure about the 1/2" for the 2" hitches?

" The 5/8" pin fits all 2" Class III receiver hitches. The 1/2" pin fits all 1-1/4" Class II receiver hitches"
