Front Recovery Points and Stock Bumper

Hey everyone,


Sorry for a noob question, but if I added something like this: https://p-p-engineering.myshopify.co...ecovery-points how would it work with the stock bumper? It seems like the shackles are pretty high up and any tow strap would interfere with the bumper.


Thanks

You might want to do some more research on P&P. I wouldn't recommend buying from them just from their customer service. Do a quick search on the forums and you will find plenty of answers but totally up to you on what you want to buy and what's available.

User @ozotron has something similar, maybe he can chime in.

It looks like they might come into contact, but that lower part of the bumper is fairly flexible. The strap might rub against it but it will be relatively difficult to rip the bumper off or something.

Ah ok.. for some reason when i was picturing it, I thought it sat farther back. This makes more sense. Thanks for the pic.

Thanks, I've seen less than positive comments about this shop, but I was more interested about the concept. I cant invest in a big bumper but I'd like some recovery points. Rear is doable with a hitch reciever, but there's nothing for the front. I want trying to understand how it'd work.

RockyMtnX (spelling?) used to produce them. he doesn't anymore but i was lucky to snag some when he still was. He puts a lot of thought into his products and they are built well. I have some pictures to help you envision it, but you can also search is old for sale page and there are plenty more. i'm sure a decent fabricator would have no problem reproducing something like this based off of pictures and quick measurements.








ADDED:
Link to old RockyMtnX sale page for reference.

Do those connect where the factory hook used to be, or further forward?

The replace the factory tow hook and use the same holes for mounting. Stock the vehicle only comes with one toe hook, but there are threaded holes that are identical on both sides.

These are also made by Dezert Runner Offroad, a SoCal business that is reliable. They don't have a website, give them a call or check their FB/IG

If there were enough people interested in them in advance i could work with a guy to get some made perhaps. I know a local metal fabricator that I am in conversations with regarding sliders. i'm sure he could use mine as a template and fab a few up in advance
