Yes. Search for posts by Zackybilly1 and Tom Finch.There was a post started the other day regarding "what's the best hitch".
I have a sub frame Kuryakan on my '10 and I do pull with it and intend to pull even heavier loads in the future. Thus far I have had confidence in it.
Anyway, a gentleman replied to that post and advised no way pull anything with a subframe mounted hitch.
I guess when I put my subframe hitch on that also uses the crash bars, my logic was everything "seems" strong enough to me and as a bonus it attaches to points that were designed to take a load already and distribute that to the main frame without messing up the frame. The entire frame crack history in the back of my mind.
Stayed away from direct frame mount for just that reason.
My logic or lack of being the the shin bone is connected to the thigh bone.
Having some second thoughts..
Should I be?
