Re: Rear recovery points
While removing my tow hook to measure, I noticed bent and rotting bolts. Also broke the welds on one of the captured nuts and had to cut the bolt, which is no big deal, since I've fixed these before. I'm just glad I noticed this now and not have it fail on the trail. I'll just use my hitch shackle until I fix it.
Sorry for going off topic
So if you drive your FJ in harsh environments and use your tow hook, check your bolts, they may fail before the hook if they look like mine
