I will disagree with you for the same reasons already posted.

Wear on a strap from sharp edges of the reciever are an unacceptable risk.

The pin can bend - why would you risk this?

Bling??? Why?? It's strong, purpose built, convenient, cheap, proven. What's your definition of bling? Most of us like bigger wheels and tires and that's probably more bling than a recovery tool.
