    that pin is called a lynch pin. My first fix was to put some tie wire on the handle so when the pin falls out you don't lose it. My fix was to replace the pin with a bolt with 2 nuts on the end so the bolt can slide takes little longer to install remove but no problems last year and a half

    pin problem

    My pin keeps falling out also, every storm i lose a pin.I have noticed that the truck is lower to the ground now, "meaning the front end" and it bottoms out at driveway entrances and bumps in the road.I think it's causing the small pin to pop out of the large pin & eventually fall out.
