Rear recovery hooks
« on: January 01, 2011, 01:56:49 pm »
I have probably used them more for towing than recovery. They can be really handy and work great when rigging a double line pull. I added two recovery hooks to the back. One on each side of the receiver hitch.



Towing a friends Tahoe last week reminded me that I had forgot to add those.

Way cool!  I removed my tow package a couple years ago.  I dont recall seeing holes on it.  Did you drilled them?

Great idea!  :cheers:

Yes. The bolts thread into a 3/8" plate which helps to reinforce the mounting.

Range Rovers are usually pretty capable. Nice to see a friendly US rig helping out a Brit  :dance:
I hope we have more of that white stuff in our future here.

Those are first generation s-series hooks.
They seemed to fit better than some others I considered. The twist they have works out just right.
