Rear Bumper Shackle Mount

Hey everyone

I own a 2015 D90 and am yet to make any customizations or upgrades to it. I would like to address the necessities first. I've been trying to find a rear bumper shackle mount for recovery situations but am having a difficult time finding one with an identical bolt pattern to the one on my defender. The bolt pattern is approximately 8.5 cm x 4.5 cm (photos attached).

If any of you could point me in the right direction or, better yet, provide me with a link to the product or manufacturer's website, I would be very grateful!

Thought I'd replied to your post. But it's MIA. The Nato pintle hitch only uses four if those bolts. You may well be able to source one locally.

Made by Dixon bate, you can also have them shipped from the UK by places like Craddocks and Paddocks.

Connect with your local Land Rover club. They probably have a good contact who can set you up with quality recovery equipment

You can get a pintle hook for like $30 on Amazon or etrailer. Had one on my 90 and worked great. Super easy and fast to put a tow strap on and I think they are rated at 30 tons or something ridiculous like that

Edit just saw you are in Kuwait. No idea where you'd buy from but I'm sure they have pintle hooks somewhere in that country.
