Mohawk 2.5 Shackle Receiver Tech Specs

The Mohawk 2.5 is warm drop forged using 6082 aluminum with the grain flow orientated to maximize the strength of your connection point providing a work load limit of 18,000 pounds. This higher quality and higher cost 6082 aluminum also has better mechanical properties and better corrosion resistance compared to 6061.

Two hitch pin holes allow for two receiver mounting positions increasing compatibility with any 2.5 inch hitch package. The third hitch pin hole allows you to rotate the receiver 90 degrees so you can position the receiver block to facilitate your recovery or towing needs for maximum versatility.

Most shackle receivers have sharp edges at the connection point which often tear soft shackles, synthetic ropes, tree savers and strap looped ends. The Mohawk 2.5 main mounting hole has a very large radius on the outer edges to reduce abrasion and increase the life of your recovery gear making this ideal for use with any closed loop recovery set up. The spined outer perimeter adds more material where you need it most and gives the Mohawk its aggressive and unique identity.
