What should I put in my Receiver?

What should I put in my Receiver? I had a Brake light, but I broke it today(backed into the side of a mountian while taking pictures).


I don't really wanna leave my hitch in there, so what shoule I get? I thought about the Clevis that Wayne has, but I already have to D rings mounted to my bumper. Any ideas, It needs to be sturdy so I don't break it while off-roading either?

I think my bumper would pretty much take care of it. It's steel and it weighs a ton, it would take quit a bit to tear up my bumper.

true, but having the tow hitch back there ensures that the other guy learns his lesson and doesn't do it again

I have one of those D-ring reciever thingys. It was painted red, but chipped so I took the paint off, but there are still a few red chunks in the grooves and stuff. Just need a little TLC to get it all clean. But I'll give you it you pretty cheap if you're interested. Maybe shipping plus $10 or something. Let me know. I don't have a use for it anymore.

I have 2 shackles already mounted to my bumper that I can be pulled out by, my bumper is mounted to the frame so it can hold the load.
