Where the best place (in terms of not damaging the truck) to attach a chain to, around a hitch ball?, the receiver cross tube?, the front hooks?
Just FYI.......I was doing this one time, when the chain broke. The broken chain link went through my rear diff cover like a bullet!!!!!!! I have often thought about..."What if it had come through the rear window!!!!!!
YIKES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! But it is your truck and your time!
Best of luck to you and yours!
I wouldn't wrap the chain around my hitch. As soon as you go to yank the chain will bind into the receiver and scratch bend and dent the crap out of it. If you really must use a heavy duty pintal hitch and do short almost no slack jerks, better yet buy a 40k tow strap thats what I have when I pull smaller trees and scrubs out. I use a 1/2" six foot long chain around the tree/shrub then a 20T shackle thats hooked between the chain and strap loop and the other loop of the strap directly to the receiver pin. I also use a old heavy dickies jacket layed on the strap just incase something breaks
