Hitchhiker Hitches and Hitch Steps
I don’t have to paint a pretty picture here. These things were built to work. Between our shop and our guys, we have everything from 4x4 pickups to jeeps, SUVs to 2 ton flatbed work trucks and there’s a few things we have all wondered and wanted. “Why can’t I get a good heavy duty reversible, adjustable hitch? that’s made in the USA” and “why can’t a get a good, big, heavy duty step to help me get in and out of the back of my truck? That I can tow with as well” and “why can’t I get a big step that I can tow with that has lights on it so I can hook up in the dark? With the flip of a switch” and last but not least “why can’t someone make a hitch that will keep a tow strap from falling off? without the extensive use of duct tape”. Well, after seeing such a considerable need we have decided to tackle it head on and the hitchhiker line of towing products from efab4u.com is what we came up with. Built with the working man in mind we believe we’ve created the toughest, most practical, most versatile line of hitches and hitch steps money can buy. And with our black textured powdercoat finish these babies are good looking. Heck, you may even want to keep one for work and one for Saturday night! A word to the wise though, put some grease in your receiver first. If you’re like us, once you put one on, you won’t be taking it off, well…unless you’re taking it of your old truck and putting it on your new one. And because we don’t rest on our laurels, in fact we don’t even know what laurels are, but anyway, new ideas, models, sizes and more are always in the works. So keep checking back.
Simple but super useful. The 24” x 8” non slip platform is made from marine grade aluminum tread plate with the sub frame being made from 10 gage steel. That’s over an 1/8” thick. The 2" square tube has a ¼” wall thickness and the tongue is made from ½” steel plate with a 1-1/32” hole for mounting up to a 2-5/16” ball with the added benefit of moving the trailer slightly away from the truck so that the tailgate can open with hitting the trailer jack. We weld every seam and joint together then pull tested it to 15000 pounds. All US materials and all US workers. So if you want a little help at the back end of your work truck, give us a try and when you’re ready to take a break with a beer or a cup of coffee it’s actually pretty comfortable to sit on too.
Exactly the same as our 24” hitch step PLUS the addition of two 6” oval LEDs, an on/off switch and a 7 way outlet with an extension to reach your truck’s outlet. Imagine the same great features of the step with the addition of lights. Whether hooking up your trailer or changing a flat, from work to play you’ll love it’s utility.
You don't have to be a ballerina to use this piece of american ingenuity. In fact a couple good size fellas could be up there at the same time....with the dog! Same great features as the 24” just bigger with a 36” x 12” surface area.The non slip platform is made from marine grade aluminum tread plate with the sub frame being made from 10 gage steel. That’s over an 1/8” thick. The 2" square tube has a ¼” wall thickness and the tongue is made from ½” steel plate with a 1-1/32” hole for mounting up to a 2-5/16” ball with the added benefit of moving the trailer slightly away from the truck so that the tailgate can open with hitting the trailer jack.

So simple it’s almost stupid. We didn’t invent the lightbulb here. We just put a 4 ton shackle on a 2” x 2-5/16” reversible ball. No, it’s not shiney chrome that turns to rust anyway. It’s black, like work boots, with a bright red shackle, so you’ll know it’s ours when you see it from a distance and it’s officially pull tested to 15000 pounds. We’re thinking about pulling more just for braggin rights. Simple, useful, cool looking, made in the USA. Did we leave anything out that even matters? Ships with 1 industrial, galvanized undercoated, epoxy painted red import shackle free of charge. shackle upgrades available as well.
Covering such a wide range of applications, we think this will be our best seller. Especially made for the stock height full size vehicles, compact vehicles or lower than normal vehicles, this hitch adjust easily with two clevis pins and ranges from 3” below your receiver centerline up to 9” above centerline. Why do you need 9” above? You’d be surprised and with the reversible 2” to 2-5/16” ball and added shackle, all the bases are covered. Ships complete with 1 industrial, galvanized undercoated, epoxy painted red import shackle. shackle up grades available as well.
If you ain’t riddin high you don’t need this rig, or you’ll be making sparks at every dip in the road. Intentionally designed for jacked up 4x4s with its two easily removable clevis pins it’ll go from 2” above your receiver centerline to 10” below, with the added convenience of chain loops down low, you know like where your trailer is. Officially pull tested to 15000 pounds it’s certifiable! literally! And with 2” to 2-5/16” reversible ball, textured powdercoat finish and bright red shackle, heck even if you never use it, It’ll still look cooler than….. I’d better let you fill in the blank. Ships complete with 1 industrial, galvanized undercoated epoxy painted red import Shackle free of charge. shackle upgrades available as well.
Riding Mower Tow Hitch
Our riding mower hitch was specifically designed for individuals who need to tow a conventional trailer with their riding mower. And no we don't mean on the highway but we have discovered that quite a few people live in neighborhoods and own either a boat, jet ski or utility trailer and need a convenient way to maneuver their trailers thru the close confines of backyard gates or between houses where using a truck is just too big and heavy and may even damage the yard or its just an easy way to move trailers around on your property. Its also great for towing a utility trailer with your mower instead of using those little rinky trailers no bigger than a wheel barrow. Made right here in Louisiana from 1/4" thick steel, fully welded and painted. It comes with all of the mounting hardware you will need and all that is required to mount it is the drilling of two 3/8" holes thru the back plate on your mower. Our mount accepts a 2" ball with the 3/4" shank. In addition to the upper ball the lower tongue allows you to still use traditional riding mower implements.
