Although Thunderhawk Performance developed our patent-pending double-shear radius rod mount to strengthen the frame and rear suspension for performance use, this Thunderhawk design is also the key to building the strongest RZR XP 900 rear receiver hitch. The Thunderhawk rear receiver hitch replaces the original radius rod stiffener plate and features additional frame mounting points (at both the top and the bottom) to securely mount the hitch directly to the frame without relying only on the four radius rod bolts for mounting. By mounting the hitch to the frame in this fashion, towing loads are transferred directly to the frame to provide superior strength and eliminate damage to the radius rod bolts.
Thunderhawk's patent-pending double-shear mounting plate upgrades the stock RZR's suspension from a single-shear radius rod mount to a much stronger double-shear design. Thunderhawk's double-shear mount creates a second frame mount for the radius rods that is securely attached directly to the frame to support the rear of the radius rods. With the radius rods now supported on both the front (through the stock frame) and the rear (through the Thunderhawk double-shear hitch plate), we have doubled the strength of the radius rod mounts, eliminating damaging frame flex and stopping the problem of deforming, elongating (egging-out) & cracking around the radius rod mounting holes in the thin RZR XP900 frame. Thunderhawk's double-shear design provides a major benefit by increasing frame and suspension strength even when you unhook the trailer and hit the trails.
The Thunderhawk rear receiver hitch is constructed using an automotive-grade, reinforced receiver tube for strength, durability and proper fitment with your towing accessories. We've also added double gussets to eliminate deflection of the receiver tube when towing, and twin tow hook points for easy attachment of tow hooks or winch cables when necessary. The Thunderhawk rear receiver hitch is designed to fit with the Polaris pre-runner rear brushguard (#2878279), the Polaris rear cab frame extension kit (#2878535) and most aftermarket bumpers or rear roll cages that use the Polaris-style mounts. This hitch does NOT fit the Polaris Jagged X Edition RZR. The tongue weight rating for this hitch is 150 lbs.
The Thunderhawk rear receiver hitch features a differential fluid service access hole so that you can easily check and top-off differential fluid without having to remove the hitch. Thunderhawk's exclusive double-shear mounting plate design makes this the only RZR XP900 hitch that does not apply additional strain to the four radius rod bolts (as others do by adding the towing load to these bolts). Instead, the Thunderhawk hitch mounts to the vehicle frame to apply towing loads directly to the frame. This design also stregthens the radius rods and the rear frame at the same time. Rear suspension work is also made much easier as the radius rods can now be removed and re-installed easily for service or maintenance. This Thunderhawk rear receiver hitch installs in about 30-45 minutes. This hitch features a black powdercoat finish for durability and good looks. Please Note: one photo shows a red hitch installed on the RZR for photo clarity, but all hitches shipped out are black. Made in USA.
This Thunderhawk Performance receiver hitch accepts standard 2" automotive receiver hitch components. 2" receiver hitches are commonly used on most pick-up trucks. Many people already own these hitch bars and components, but these parts are also readily available at any large discount store or auto parts chain.
