Trailer hitch for the XX

I'm going through the Tucker Rocky catalog right now and it looks like there will be a trailer hitch for the XX coming out 10/30/09. Anyone think they might put one on their quad? I think I probably will.

No thanks.

IMO these weren't made to tow, they were made to haul.

Plus, it's more weight.

I had a local garage weld a receiver on mine and it works great. I used it to pull my trailer out of my backyard, for yardwork if needed and to hook a tow line to it. Let me know if you wanna see pics

That's pretty much the exact reasons I want one.

Seriously though, my brother has a 350 rancher 4X4 at the farm and it is SO much better for any kind of work. Geared way lower which makes it easier to maneuver/ motivate heavy loads even though it has less than half the horsepower of the XX. You don't realize how fast the XX is even with a 13t at idle in first gear until you jump on a true utility and start crawling.

That being said, it would be great for getting unstuck or what have you, but for lawn work I'd use something more suitable. Even a lawn mower would be better IMO.
