Front Recovery Ponts

Hello All

I need ideas on front recovery points. I don't have a bull bar or winch, yet. I do have JATE rings for the front, but I recently removed them to fit a skid plate, which uses those mounting points. Are there any other options on front recovery with the stock bumper while leaving the skid plate attached?

Hey James, Here is a link to a product sold at Expedition Exchnge. These recovery hooks mount to the fram rather than a bumper. These may work for you but they may require some drilling to mount. Scroll down the whole page. It has pictures of them mounted. May be your answer.

Go for the Dixon-Bates. Proper LR equipment, worth the extra change.

Dixon Bates are great. But you'd need a stouter bumper to mount them on (Stock would not be a good choice). The CT bumper with a Husky 10 is a very sexy choice. See Wicks' Avitar.

I currently have tow hooks mounted to the frame. My SouthDown prevents Jate rings as well. They work well. But I'd rather have the Dixon Bates or shackles mounted to a stronger front bumper.

Dixon Bates?

Yes those Dixon Bates are bad-ass but would you want to mount those onto a stock bumper? I think he is looking for an option that is not bumper mounted. Can the DBs be mounted on the frame or??

The 5.0 ton can be mounted to the rear cross member. Also very bad-ass....

What about Drings? They mount above the bumper and use the bumper mounting boltd that go through the chassis and an additional two bolts through the actual bumper.

James,

Scorpion Racing has some brackets that attach to the frame on the D90s (http://www.scorpionracing.co.uk/Prod...ye_bracket.jpg).

Just a thought.

The Scorpion Racing recovery points are really good because they can swivel as a winch cable takes up the strain. They're a very neat recovery point.
I wish more people would fit decent recovery points BEFORE they go off roading and get very stuck. it makes recovery sooo much safer and easier.
That's me in the top left corner of the photo wondering exactly how to extract this LR from it's watery grave with B@$%^*- all at the back to hook a rope onto

For someone with this bumper, what's the bolt diameter on the front recovery point?

Ken, sorry I didn't get back to your 2nd email yet, so I will post some things here.

Swivel D-rings, also called Swivel Hoist Rings, here are the ones that Granger sells:
The 10K - http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/pro...591655&ccitem=
The 5K - http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/pro...716342&ccitem=

I can never remember the vendor that Safari Gard used for theirs so hopefully someone else can post that link.

The measurements from mine are here in this picture below. (keep in mind the picture used is one of the Granger models and not my actual model).

Ken Loy & Front Swivel Recovery

Ken, I sent you an email a few days ago but I have not received a response so I thought I would post it here on this BBS.

I sent the Scorpion Racing swivel recovery shackle to Lee at Rockware to see if it would be possible to install it on the bumper they are making for you. Lee said it would not be possible because they were using square tubing and it would not fit. They would have to make a large hole on the backside to insert the shackle from the back and then weld it shut.... not a good idea.

I am having UPS pickup the shackle. Sorry that it didn't work out.

BTW, the shackle fits a bit loose on an ARB bumper because the ARB is not as thick as the Scorpion Racing bumpers.

Just thought I'd let you and other folks know...

Thanks,

John C.

Kens on the road from time to time so if you don't get a reply right away he is most likely just traveling.

But some good info.
