Regards,

John, Sorry for not answering your email last week. I spoke with Matt at RW about the install, and you got it right. It seems that the Scorpion shackles work better for flat plate installs than for square tubes. I really appreciate your going through the effort.

Also, thanks to all for the thoughts on the swivel hoist eyes too. Sad to say, that even after all that discussion, I decided to go with the stock mounts. It was mostly for lack of time to do more research and ordering. Not too tough to mod it later, though, if I run out of other mods to do.

With some luck, I'll have the bumper installed for the GWNF trip. Art, I hope you DON'T see my bumper there next week because it'll be on a truck headed east! EAGER!

Thanks again, John, and sorry for no replying by email earlier.

Hey all

I read this thread, but still don't have a clear answer to what's a strong enough (yet affordable) solution to a front recovery point on a d90 with a stock bumber and brush bar.

It has vertical mounting holes on the frame that the bumper/brsuh guard mount to, but the bolts are puny. There are horizontal holes with a tube inside on the bottom of the front frame railes - could I attach big D rings to that - those hles are a bit small too? Or am I supposed to drill holes in the frame for one of those meat hooks?

thanks
charles

This is an old thread, but I was hoping to revive it and get an answer on what type of front recovery point I can set up with a stock bumper. I don't need it on the bumper per say, but what can I attach to the front frame, bumper, etc. to serve as a decent recovery point? Thanks in advance.

I ended up getting jate rings until I added a front skid which then required removing them (but I had a rockware bumper with recovery points by that time). They mount directly to the frame horns.

I've got Jate rings, plenty strong enough unless you go for it with a KER rope. A bridle between the two adds peace of mind though.

i got my jate rings from dap-inc.com at a very reasonable price. there is a spot on the frame where they fit into. only suggestion i have it to have a long bridle - say 6+ feet - from each and then attach the two ends to whatever you are using for a tow rope.
