When it comes to towing a trailer safely, it’s important to know towing basics. Click here to read about common towing myths. One of the most important aspects of towing safely is becoming familiar with weight capacities and limits of your vehicle, towing equipment and trailer.
The number one cause of trailer hitch failure and roadside trailer accidents is overloaded tongue weight. This is the weight from the front of your trailer pushing down on your tow vehicle with cargo, axle, tanks and more.
Overloaded tongue weight or “vertical load” causes trailer hitches to break and also has severe negative effects on the truck's ability to steer and maneuver safely due to off-balance weight. Click here to learn about the importance of tongue weight and weight distribution.
To address weight concerns Torklift International has taken the lead in the towing industry with the SuperHitch Outlaw Series. The Outlaw Series features the highest rated receiver hitches and towing accessories available.
In most states it’s against the law to exceed maximum tow weight rating of your vehicle. There is no question about elevated safety hazards and it also makes you liable in the unfortunate event of an accident. It is also likely to void any warranty or insurance coverage. We strongly suggest staying within the maximum weight capacities set by your vehicles’ manufacturer.
When used with weight distribution, we offer receiver hitches that handle an incredible 3,000 pounds tongue weight capacity and 30,000 pounds towing capacity. It’s best to have the SuperHitch Outlaw Series on your side.
There are a few reasons that set SuperHitch receiver hitches apart from other towing hitches.
#1) High capacity towing
When used with a weight distribution system, the SuperHitch exceeds high capacity towing needs with unique patented designs for half-ton through 1.5-ton trucks.

#2) Reinforced hitch pin locations
The hitch pin location is where a ballmount adapter would be attached and secured with a pin. From there, the trailer tongue is connected. It’s common to experience wear and elongation known as ‘egging’ at the hitch pin location from excessive towing. The elongation causes jerking which leads to increased distortion and damage.
You won’t find the effects of elongation on a SuperHitch. Every SuperHitch has reinforced hitch pin locations to prevent this from occurring.

#3) Dual Stacked Receiver
Not only does the dual stacked hitch receiver design allow for outstanding strength, but it also gives you the freedom to tow accessories in the upper receiver. This includes cargo trays, bike racks, or carriers for generators, motorbikes, kayaks, etc.
If you plan to tow while hauling with an overhang from a truck camper, the dual receiver fits perfectly with the dual-channeled SuperTruss towing extension. With models that reach from 21 to 60 inches, check towing extension capacities here.

Built in the Unites States, all receiver hitches featured in the SuperHitch Outlaw Series are covered with a lifetime warranty.
