Safari Gard Swivel Recovery Points

Looking for a set of Safari Gard or Safari Gard front bumper compatible swivel recovery points. The only ones I can find in production are from Viking and Terrafirma. I believe both require a bigger opening than what I have, and I don't care to weaken that area by drilling. This will be a temporary solution until I remove the bumper, have proper pintle mount points welded on and a few other mods, and do a complete scrub and re-powedercoat. Thanks

You would be better with a set of Jate rings. Do you need them to transport the truck or for recovery?

Both.... Trying to think about what I need to have her shipped to the west coast and for the simple fact that Im lacking any recovery points front or rear. I'd rather not weld on pintle mounts yet till I'm back on the left coast but I may do it and rattle can over it for now. Im aware of the static load issue with the swivels, and now the cost. This is strictly temporary.

What do you have on your SG bumper Scott?

A hole beats a fitting every time. In addition, a chain with a hook on the end looped over a chassis rail and hooked on itself trumps a "recovery point".

If it's just for shipping the standard tie downs are fine. They made it across the Atlantic and to the dealer using them.
That said, I've hauled a lot of rovers with chain over the axles and load binders.

The Jate rings are quick and easy, and bolt to the frame. And for the rear, put a recovery point in the trailer hitch.

Thanks for the feedback. Im a farm town hick from Idaho who is unfortunately load planner qualified by Uncle Sam, been around a lot of trailered contraptions. Most interesting haul has been 4 Stryker Infantry Carriers onto a Russian Antonov, the worlds largest air cargo platform.

My D is far from perfect but I want to avoid potential chain/come a long damage on my body or chassis. Plus, she just looks wierd with no recovery points; just trying to be a poser.

If just for transport, then yeah the stock tie downs are fine, as Tom said.

For transport and general recovery work, the jate rings cant be beat for the $$.

Obviously if you're going to be bogging your rig down to the framerails and trying out olympic level dynamic recovery techniques, then yes, you will need to step up from the jate rings. They're still great to have on the rig in any case.

Jate rings are not designed for recovery, they are designed as tie down points. Are you going to use a pipe wrench to take off your lugnuts? It will work, but it's not the proper tool for the job. Install a proper recovery point...

quick edit:
and cost about the same as a jate ring...

So......anyone have the Safari Gard Swivel Recovery Points?

Thanks all for the Joint Air Transportation Executive Rings discussion. I'll take the advise and get 4 for the 90's trip to the other coast, whether I trailer it or have someone else do it. But I'd still like to get some swivels until I have the time to re-vamp my front end. They will definitely not be abused while I'm here in middle Georgia. And the hitch mounted recovery point looks good for now as well.

I have one on my truck...

I use the Jate rings to tie the truck down to the trailer, crossed, and I do the same in the back, connecting my straps to the opposite side gas tank cradle. Works great.

I have a set of 10K straps with a foot of chain on each end, they work great.

Fwiw, the recovery swivels on my SG bumper look damn similar to those posted by Jeff at McMaster. You'd be MUCH better off getting even a 3k set of these than using Jate rings. Or pony up a few bucks more and get the heavier duty from McM.
