Tow hitch maximum load capacity?
I am going to buy a recovery strap, D-ring receiver mount, and various other accessories so that I am well-equipped if I'm ever in a position to need to pulled out of something (or to help pull someone else out).
The maximum trailer weight on my WK2 Overland Hemi is 8,000 pounds. Is that also the maximum permissible load on the receiver hitch, or is the maximum permissible load different?
The point of my question is - do I risk damaging the vehicle if I buy a 20,000 or 30,000 pound recovery strap? No one seems to make a 10,000 pound strap, but all else being equal, I'd prefer the strap to break before the frame.
