By design, UTVs are some of the most capable vehicles on the planet, yet most owners rarely tap into their full potential as utility machines. Most people take their side-by-side to the trails once or twice a year, haul a couple loads of game meat from the field back to base camp, complete a few simple chores around the homestead, then store it away in the garage or shed for most of the machine’s life. Fortunately, Can-Am Defender owners are a different breed of recreationalist. They bought their Defenders not only for what they can do on the trail, but what they will do on the homestead. After all, Can-Am products always live up to the ‘U’ in UTV. In order to tap into your machine’s full potential, you’ll need to invest in an assortment of Can-Am Defender hitch and frame support accessories. Like Can-Am, Everything Can-Am Offroad doesn’t want to limit your capabilities. Instead, we want to provide you with all the best Can-Am Defender hitch accessories and frame support components to help you make the most of your UTV.
To get started, you’ll need to make sure you have a high-quality Can-Am Defender hitch receiver. Hitch receivers serve as the foundation for most towing and hauling tasks, so it’s worth the investment to make sure yours is built to last. There are many aftermarket manufacturers that make solid products. Most name-brand towing product manufacturers make receivers that will fit your Defender that are strong, durable, and corrosion-resistant. We offer several great options that minimize bulk and weight without sacrificing performance. The included hardware makes installation a cinch, and the standard dimensions will accept most typical Can-Am Defender hitch accessories.
Once your foundation for towing and hauling is established with a high-quality receiver, you’ll want to invest in some basic accessories. First, you’ll need to get a Can-Am Defender hitch ball and mount combo. Occasionally referred to as starter kits, a simple mount and ball combo will allow you to tow any number of different implements. If you already have a mount, then you can purchase a variety of different ball sizes to fit whatever you’re towing. Of course, no mount is secure without a proper Can-Am Defender hitch pin. Our clevis hitch pins come with handles and large retaining pins for easy operation in all temperatures and weather conditions. Lastly, it would be wise to get a Can-Am Defender hitch extension. Hitch extensions ensure you can tow all your favorite tools and outdoors equipment without jackknifing trailers, and they improve trailer maneuverability when reversing into tight spaces.
Owners hoping to significantly expand their capabilities beyond basic towing and hauling tasks can purchase any number of different Can-Am Defender hitch accessories that are as comfortable in the backwoods as they are on the ranch. One of the most overlooked accessories is a hitch step. Most hitch steps fit into the receiver like any other accessory, and they will quickly become a favorite feature for anyone who regularly steps up into the bed or needs to gain leverage on heavy objects above waist height. Another beneficial piece of equipment worth having is a Can-Am Defender hitch rack. A quality hitch rack will nearly double the amount of gear you can haul while also lowering the height of loads for easier access. There’s nothing more utilitarian than a good hitch rack. Hunting enthusiasts will appreciate the next couple items. The first is a utility or game lifter. Utility lifters quickly pay for themselves for hunters who process their own meat in the field as well as ranchers needing an extra set of hands at a comfortable working height. The second item is a gun mount. A sturdy Can-Am Defender hitch adapter outfitted with gun scabbards will allow you to make full use of the bed space without leaving your firearms exposed to the weather and trailside obstacles.
In addition to front receiver hitches, you can also get hitches of various sizes — such as Can-am Defender 2 inch receiver hitches and 1.5 inch receiver hitches. Further with the Can-am Defender 3 point hitch, you’ll gain the versatility to run any attachment, trailer, or hitch-related aftermarket accessory on your side-by-side. Weight distribution hitches are common among many Can-am Defender owners who like to add removable weight to the front or rear of their machine when riding up or backing down hills. With the hitches and hitch receivers from Everything Can-Am Offroad, you don’t have to remove your winch to do this. There is room to install our hitches by just removing the winch mounting bolts. And while some might tell you that you have to remove the plastic radiator deflector, you can easily notch yours out for the hitch and reinstall it. So regardless of why you need a UTV trailer hitch or hitch receiver and whatever you plan to attache to your side-by-side, we’ve got the right Can-am Defender hitch for you!
Choosing the right hitch and frame support for your Can-Am Defender is a lot more than simply choosing a brand. You must know before you even decide to add a hitch to your Can-Am the weight of what you will be towing. You should also be aware of what the attachment point is on the trailer or whatever you will be puling. The hitches and frame support that we carry are made by some of the best brands in today’s UTV aftermarket industry. They are built strong, they are built to execute their duties consistently and do so from the day of installation and for years to come. They are made out of some of the toughest materials and are engineered by some of the best minds. Take Battle Armor UTV for instance, this particular company is one known for the strength and resilience of the hitches and frame support offerings that they make. Their parts are trusted by riders across the globe and you will be hardpressed to find someone dissatisfied by their hitch. Choose a hitch or frame support add-on for your Can-Am defender or your Can-Am Defender MAX from the options that you see here, have it installed and either get through your work efficiently, take that camping trip with all you want to carry hauled behind you, or tow a friend in need.
A hitch is a perfect addition to a utilitarian vehicle such as yours as it offers you more options for pulling, towing and hauling. A heavy-duty hitch is a lifesaver in times when you need to haul heavy materials or machinery or help tow a friend to safety. It is no surprise why hitches are considered a must-have accessory that every real rider needs. We have the perfect hitch for you at Everything Can-Am Offroad. You can get a 2 Inch Rear Receiver Hitch for your Can-Am Defender or a UTV Receiver Hitch Step by Battle Armor for your Can-Am Defender MAX. These hitches are perfect for your UTV, whether you use it for farming or hunting. They also allow you to easily connect to other accessories that use a hitch. A hitch is the perfect simple upgrade for any rider. Get hitches and frame support for your side by side from Everything Can-Am Offroad.
Whether you’re towing farming implements, dragging logs, or pulling a small UTV trailer for an extended camping excursion, running Can-am Defender hitches on your side-by-side will open up a wide variety of options for both work and play. And with regards to Can-am Defender receiver hitches, you aren’t limited to just rear receiver hitches. Cam-am Defender front receiver hitches are also available for the front of your vehicle. At Everything Can-Am Offroad, we’ve got all sorts of receiver hitches for the Can-am Defender, Defender Max, and other Defender editions. We offer lower mount UTV receiver hitches as well as high-mount options — which allow you to have a receiver above the factory winch location. The top hitch mount is above the factory winch location, but it is covered with the Rage bumper. So even if you want to keep your front-mounted winch, you can still run a front receiver hitch on you Can-am Defender.
A few simple Can-Am Defender hitch accessories can open up a whole new world for you and your machine. They’ll quickly change the way you use your UTV to hunt, camp, explore trails, and complete farm chores. Best of all, even the most expensive name-brand parts are affordable.
