Pic's needed - Recovery point location on ARB bumpers

All,
Need some pictures of where to mount my recovery points on my ARB bumper.

I am mounting the 3 ton Shackles with backing plates from EE to either the inside (winch side) of the frame rails or immediatly out board of the frame rails. Either way i need them as close to the raisl as possible for max strength.

Some pictures would be really helpful of what others have done.

Other bull bars are not really helpful since the profile is different than the ARB's ( i know some/most don't like these bars but i have been using them for a while on various trucks and they suit my needs, plus ARB is local to me currently)

yep - that is the out board position i was looking at - however the right side overlaps the indent for hte ARB sticker and so would not sit flush with the metal.

looks like inboard is where i should place them. not much room with the EP 9.0 in there but doable i think.

Ze - that ARB looks a lot better with the mods - what exactly did you do if you don't mind me asking? And any other pics of it? TYIA.

I removed roller fairlead support, removed original low recovering points and cut a thin plate to cover extra holes and grinding blemishes. I only did this because I get the ARB for free. You're better off buying a new bumper.

Looks great! I think I may do something similar with the ARB on my Classic. I don't need the roller fairlead support and I'm tired of hitting and bending the recovery loops.

Holy thread revival! I want to add a pair of proper recovery points to my ARB to use with a bridal strap, and wanted to know more about this style. I know quite a few of you use this style in various brands. this on is RN.

I don't see backing plates for these, so are these meant for bumpers with reinforced holes made for them, or will these be strong enough to just drill the correct size in my bumper and install?

They pivot right? Like the old SG swiveling recovery points if I recall?

I'd go backing plate just for insurance.

I'd like to see more specs on the RN item-are you commenting on the SG hoist rings not being used for recovery, or these. I'm a bit skeptical of both truth be told.

Equipe used the same swivels. As long as your mounting thickness is the same as the shoulder to the snap ring, you don't need a backing plate. Looks like 1/4" or 3/8".

The ARB bumper is thinner, say 1/8" or 3/16", so you'll want to add a backing plate/ washer to make up the difference.

I think that's a stretch... I have used my SG swivel rings several times for both static and dynamic recovery, as well as seen many other SG owners doing the same. It would take an amazing amount of force to see a failure.

Come on, as long as we aren't taking specific elements of politics that isn't that odd!

I have used mine a few times, but only for minor needs. Never felt like they were meant for serious recovery.
