Recovery hoop

Looking for those recovery hoops that go in place of vehicle tie down loop. This is for classic RR but I think military defenders came w them front n back.

Appreciate any leads

Just keep in mind they are not designed nor ever intended for recovery.

so whats the verdict then? half the 'experts' out there say bumper mounted recovery are never good enough. only acceptable place is frame. and now we're saying jate rings aren't good enough?

Depends on the bumper, depends on the fasteners.

A dual grade 8 bolted recovery point to the chassis is perfectly acceptable. A properly plated bumper mounted point is acceptable. There are plenty of acceptable points

I have an ARB, and completely agree on keeping it up high. thoughts on adding recovery points (of proper quality) to an ARB?

there's a lot of self-proclaimed experts out on the web that can't agree on the color of the sky, let alone recovery points for an ARB.

The bumper needs to be suitably designed for the recovery point(s). With a a Defender chassis, IMO, it should be attached to more than just the four stock locations. At some point in the design, someone adequately qualified in structural design should review the system.

You could use the Dixon bates unit with a larger backing plate.

I like the low profile swivels. not sure if an ARB is strong enough to mount them. I"m looking for real strength in recovery scenarios, not bling (not that I think Dixon's are bling, but rather for any follow on advice).

ARB is plenty strong, as long as you use a LARGE backing plate.

Are these genuine LR JATE rings? If so, I'm 2nd in line behind OP if he doesn't follow up.

And JATE rings are certainly proper recovery points if used correctly.
