It happens in every RAM owner's life. Well, at least the ones who take their trucks off the beaten path. You're out in the great outdoors on the trail, you push things a little too far and find yourself stuck in the mud, sand or snow. Try as you might, your wheels are just spinning and you're sinking deeper into a rut. As RAM owners ourselves, we've been there too. That's why American Trucks offers a range of recovery hooks to get you out of that inevitable jam. Recovery hooks are one of those things that seem unnecessary — until you need them. Well, take it from us: don't overlook these essential lifesavers until it's too late. They can save your bacon and even stop you from having to shell out a bunch of money for repairs. In fact, some races require you to have a tow hook installed in case of emergency. Our selection of Dodge RAM 1500 recovery hooks are strong, tough and long-lasting, so you'll probably only need one for the life of your RAM. Unless, of course, you find yourself in sticky situations a little too often. Here you'll find a few different options when it comes to weight and maximum load. Full-size recovery hooks can tip the scales at 25 pounds, but there's a reason they're so heavy — they can handle loads of up to 45,000 pounds. In all likelihood, that's way more than you would ever need. However, if you're trying to pull down a tree and yank out a stump, it never hurts to have some extra load capacity to play with. You might not need that much pulling capacity or you might not want to add the extra weight to your RAM. Or, you might not want to shell out that much for an industrial-sized recovery hook when a smaller one would suffice. That's why we also carry a few compact recovery hooks as well. One of the smaller versions might only weigh in at 14-15 pounds, keeping things lightweight for off-roading, and still give you a whopping 20,000 pounds of load capacity. Again, that's enough for most recovery situations. Every Dodge RAM 1500 recovery hook at American Trucks is forged from a titanium-based alloy. Titanium has a low density for less weight, but it's one of the strongest elements on earth. Even better, it's naturally resistant to corrosion from water, chlorine and other potentially harmful chemicals, making it an excellent choice for durability. Our smaller tow hooks work with tow straps sized from two inches to four inches, while our larger recovery hooks are available for two straps anywhere from two inches to 10 inches, giving you a wide range to work with. Both styles are suited for use with a standard size 2-inch receiver, so compatibility is never an issue. All of them come with stainless steel safety latches that prevent the strap or rope from sliding off. It's a seemingly simple mechanism, but it can mean the difference between success and failure, and even life or death. Smaller models have 2-⅝-inch safety latches and larger models are equipped with three ½-inch latches. And, because we know how important your Dodge RAM's look is to you, we offer recovery hooks in a couple of different finishes. To match a murdered-out, stealthy look on your rig, we've got hooks bathed in a satin black powder coat finish. Or, if a mirror-like finish is more your thing, check out our flashy chrome styles. For an even safer and stronger alternative to hooks, we also have winch shackle mounts. Originally designed for military operations, they're now available to the public, giving you up to 63,000 pounds of load capacity and eliminating the possibility of a slip-off. Whatever you choose, know that it ships for free if your order is over $75, plus it's covered by our generous 30-day return policy. If you're not happy with it, send it back for a refund. And here's the best part about buying from American Trucks — we're RAM enthusiasts ourselves, so our customer service reps are here to help you with whatever problem you may have.
