Default need some opinions on hitch

You guys think I should keep my hitch or get rid of it? I no longer tow anything and really have no use for it. I only use it to pull people and to help save my ass in an accident. What do you guys think?

Keep it, and always leave a ball on it. That way when someone tailgates you and the proverbial cat runs across the road it will punch a nice hole in their bumper...

Or their radiator

Managed to crack a block on a chevy 1500 this way but that was with a large load leveling hitch on a tundra. That'll teach him

I say keep it as long as its been redone so that it doesn't hang way down under your bumper because of the body lift.

I would leave it on with something in the receiver (I have a tow hook) as added protection. Or sell it for $50 on CL...
