Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

That is a standard 2" receiver with a 5/8" cross pin, same as any trailer hitch on any truck.
That 5/8" pin is good for towing an 18,000lb trailer. If it can't hold up to the force from a 12,000lb winch, we should all just run and hide.

I agree a 12000 lb winch can't shear a 5/8 pin. In reality would have to shear it twice. I have a old style 8000 Warn on a receiver hitch have had 2 blocks in the line and had it tied to a large tree. It broke the chain a couple of times 3/8 in. Had to get a rated chain. Vic

5/8 can be too small...depends on the grade of steel. Plus pulling an 18,000 lb trailer doesnt neccisarily put 18,000 lbs on the pin. A 12,000 # winch however will put 12,000# on the pin at full capacity which is a different loading than what that pin was originally designed. A 3/4" gr 5 pin would be better (considering some safety factors).
