Front Recovery Points

So Iconic has the rear recovery points covered.
https://www.fjcruiserforums.com/foru...ml#post9121406

What is a good upgrade for the front recovery points?
I am not looking for a new bumper.
The factory fronts may be strong but what is a "stronger" option that protects the frame etc?
The ARB's at $258 ea is a bit salty.
Is there a "good" engineered alternative that others have tried and tested?

Thanks

Pat

Re: Front Recovery Points

Not sure. Anybody ever had to have their FJ pulled out of anywhere?

Re: Front Recovery Points

I am sure some FJ's needed to use their front tow points to pull a Rubicon out of trouble

Re: Front Recovery Points

G'day,
If you google
FJ Cruiser front recovery points
You'll have lots of options, like this
https://www.roadrunneroffroad.com.au...prado-150-pair

and reasonably price too, compared to ARB prices - for the same thing....

cheers

Re: Front Recovery Points

Do these bolt into existing holes and do you need to remove anything to install or just bolt them on?

I am mechanically challenged so the just bolt on, torque and go is about the limit of my capabilities.

thanks

G'day Pat,
Yes, bolt on n go... don't need to remove anything....
from memory, they use existing frame nuts and a third bolt n nut going thru a hole in the frame...so no drilling or cutting etc
The third bolt is a bit fiddly, the nut is welded onto a rod and you have to stick in into the frame and line it up with the hole n bolt....
cheers
Baz

Agree but wouldn't want to put a soft shackle on them with the sharp edge.

One time out of a 3.5ft deep mud hole I got stuck in. Bro in a Bronco yanked me out. I swear that puddle wasn't that deep when I went through it the first time that day
