light bar for towing?

Hey, i love the look of this lightbar/bumper im just wondering if its useable for recovery, either throwing a strap around it or getting some recovery points welded onto it.

If it is a plate bumper then probably...

Have a link? pic? company name? something so we can give an accurate opinion?

I'd venture to say you wouldn't want to use the Avid light bar in this manor.

You MIGHT be able to do some VERY light pulling with it, but I sure wouldn't risk it.
