John E Davies Posted March 28, 2018 Share Posted March 28, 2018 I sent in this request to Oliver, I thought that it would be good to also discuss this in the open forum. Hi, I plan to do a lot of travel off pavement in National Forests this summer. I have not read a word from Oliver about safe and effective methods of recovery, using a tow truck and also using more primitive methods..... (self rescue - jeep with a winch). Where would you hook up a recovery strap or chain in back to prevent damage to the aluminum frame? In the front? Would it be possible for me to add strong steel recovery hooks or rings in the back? if so where and how? Please let me know what the factory feels about this, and issue a bulletin for other owners. I don't plan on getting stuck, but if it happens I would like to know how to deal with it and minimize damage. Would it be OK to mount a pair of these on the aluminum frame just forward of the rear bumper? Discuss.
