41.22 Hitch Slider Review – Company Overview and Other products

41.22 Hitch Slider REVIEW – Protection for your hitch receiver with Integrated recovery point.

The 41.22 Hitch Slider is an accessory that helps protect your vehicle’s hitch receiver from damage caused by obstacles on the trail, especially for vehicles with longer wheelbases such as the Jeep Gladiator or Toyota Tacoma. These types of vehicles may be more prone to having their hitch come into contact with the ground due to their departure angle. The Hitch Slider can be especially useful for off-road enthusiasts who regularly take their vehicles on challenging trails. I personally used the Hitch Slider on my Jeep JK Wrangler and found it to be effective even on difficult trails where the Wrangler’s departure angle is put to the test.


Who is 41.22inc?


The name is a reference to the year the first Jeep Willy’s was made (1941) and the length of the iconic Rubicon Trail (22 miles). Although the company has a fondness for Jeeps, their products are not exclusively designed for that make and model and are meant to be suitable for a wide range of vehicles.

While the 41.22 Hitch Slider may seem pricey at first glance, it is important to consider the materials and manufacturing process used to create it.

Steel VS Aluminum
