Dronus4x4 Rear Recovery Point Build up


Recommended Posts

Ok, this is just a scratch area to keep ideas on building my rear recovery point.

Once its built and confirmed to not kill anyone ill post it in the Recovery Points Thread.

The Problem:

The Telstra bar on the back of my GU doesn't have a hayman Reece hitch, so i cannot use the normal recovery insert. Make something stronger.

The investigation:

I took the tow pintle off and was happy to see that the bolt layout is the standard for 4 bolt tow hitches. The tow hook that was fitted on the back step fit fine, however i need something much stronger.

So i ended up with something like this until i work out the new recovery point.
