    So the loop on the driver side is meant as a tie-down point. And there's that smaller piece of essentially angle iron with a hole through it. But the bolt pattern is weird (they're not in a straight line with the front-rear axis of the truck; one is offset by maybe 1/2", so the bolts are effectively diagonal.)

    All your standard-seeming tow hooks have two bolts in a straight line. So even if the spacing is the same, you'd have an angled hook, and suddenly that's throwing weird lateral forces into an already complicated mix.

    So, what do you guys use for a front recovery point with a stock bumper?
