It can also be used for a winch for maybe pulling a ATV or 4-wheeler out of the mud offroad. It's nicely tucked up and hidden to where all you can see is the face of the receiver tube opening here and that's even nice and tight against the bottom side of the fascia. This hitch also features these recovery eye hooks. It's got one on either side to allow you to attach a safety chain or winch cable, anything like that because you don't want to hook it to a ball mount that would be in the hitch.
