hmmmm.... I knew you pulled a jet ski, but I see now that you use the bumper hitch.
Do not use the lower control arm if you need to pull from the front.
Get the loop through a frame opening or use a dreaded hook style to get through a hole in the frame.
If using your axle to pull from the rear, loop the strap closer to the middle near the pumpkin to spread the load, pull straighter, and help prevent any reverse axle wrap on the leaf spring or pulling out of alignment.
You can be pulled by your hitch, but do not exceed in force the weight rating of the bumper hitch.
Jon - in all seriousness you are better off to just stick to trail riding and not try to go off road, and there is a difference.
