Last night a had a chance to snap a few pics of Lookinfurfun. Check 'em out. Not sure if I did the link correctly. Here it goes.

Nice pics. Sorry, don't think that's a secure recovery point up front, but whatever works for you. Just remind me to not take a pull from you......

I'm a rookie. What could I do to secure it better then?

Re: New pics

Well, IMO all that bracketry's gotta go. For a secure recovery point you want it to be mounted directly to the frame w/quality hardware or to a STOUT, properly designed bumper (like a winch bumper). Is there room to mount the hook on the bottom of the framerail and notch the bumper so you can get to it? Sometimes you can just move the bumper up, too.

Re: New pics

that is exactly what i did to mine:
notched the bumper, and bolted a tow hook right up to the frame. (got the idea from TheJuice). Do it right, and it look like its supposed to be there!

Hooks

I've never liked the idea of mounting hooks that way - if I wanted to be able to drive over an obstacle, grab it, and pull it backwards, that's how I'd mount them. But I don't want to drive over an obstacle, find I can't make it, and then back up &amp; find I'm attached to it. If I didn't have my bumper, I'd have put shackle brackets on the bottoms of the frame rails. They could be attached EXACTLY like that hook, but a shackle will pivot if you run over something and it can be easily removed when the wheeling is done. They're also MUCH more reliable than hooks...[img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
