If there’s one thing I’m hoping we can all agree on, if you like boats, you like trucks. They’re not just our daily drivers, they're our workhorses, our boat mules, and more often than not, our home away from home. Our passion for trucks runs deep and whether we’re building a full blown project (see Josephine) or just gearing up for another journey, we’re always looking for the perfect accessories to get the job done. As we built out Deadrise Project, one of the most important truck accessories for us is always a solid hitch and we knew we wanted a partnership with a hitch company that was built for adventure, so we did our homework. The people behind B&W Hitches understand the importance of the journey and made sure to build a product that can stand up to the elements, the abuse we give them, and look great while doing so.
As we gear up our fleet up for the travels ahead, there are a couple things our B&W hitches offer that really make our lives easier on the road. First, security. Most adjustable hitches will require multiple locking pins to make sure the ball mount doesn’t disappear. The B&W has a drop shaft that’s totally enclosed on both ends, so the ball mount cannot be removed. This means you only need the one locking pin attaching the hitch to your receiver, and ensures your hitch will be there come morning. The second thing we love is the “tow & stow” ability. That’s right, in under a minute you can flip the hitch to the backside of the drop shaft, storing it underneath the bumper and completely out of the way of your shins. This unique feature really sets the hitch apart from anything else out there. Lastly, and something that really matters to us, is quality and durability. We’ve been running our first hitch for 8 months now and there’s not even a sign of rust on it, anywhere. We can’t truly say we’ve ever had any hitch last more than a month without rust on it. The hitch is solid as a rock, has no squeaks, and looks damn good on the back of all of our vehicles. We’re thankful to be working with such a great company that aligns with our mission of getting out there. If you’re ready to upgrade your hitch, check out the line HERE.
