Just wondering if these hitch skids reduce departure angle quite a bit, or is the protection worth it on our trucks? Pros and cons? I’m still on the fence. Dragging the hitch if done very slowly shouldn’t damage it much?

I got one because my safety chain loops were getting bent. No worries now, unless I’m towing my trailer offroad. I need a skid that works while towing.

You could look into a dual hitch receiver. It will reduce your departure angle more.

Daughter's birthday request was to go wheeling, so went out with the club today. First we went up a ridge, then we winched a CJ when he almost flipped, then we went down the other side. Steepest slope I've been on yet, got to 26 degrees. First off-roading the wife has done in 19 years, now she is hooked again.

Don't know if this counts but. There is this artist that does these secret art things around town every six months and you gotta go find it. So I drove about 40 minutes and found it.

That’s awesome. I’ve got a few that I found on dives. These teeth are what got me into the hobby.

Not all are Megs. Found off NC.

Where is that and what is the club? How often do they go out?

That's so awesome. I've been looking for a real tooth that's large for my daughter, she's obsessed with dinosaurs and sharks.

Crazy that you found all those.

How do you know if it's a megalodon tooth?
