Just was wondering or will the stock bumper brace just pull off? This is regarding both thr front and rear bumpers.

Thanks

Theres a thread somewhere on here about it. Most Ive seen, however, have it hooked up to the hitch in the back. I know Tractor Supply has them for about $40 but I think the hole needs to be re-drilled for correct positioning.

Do a search for "Recovery Shackle"... that should work :bigthumb:

I'm planning on it, got some on order. You have to mount them on center location with the main bumber braces & use plate washers or an additional flat bracket with the bolt holes, otherwise you'll crumple the bumber. Take a look you'll see the braces.

just hang some d-rings to your factory front tow hooks, thats what i did.....looks great
I think those toe hooks are there for shipping tie downs and I'm not sure I would trust them for recovery. That said, they are pretty strong.

if you like the look of the stock front bumper with D-rings..
you can replace your front valance with lucrum winch mount.. you don't have to buy the winch..



here's for the rear
