    Those have no official tow rating therefore they are for aesthetic purposes only. Personally I’d remain stuck over letting someone tow me out with those. If you’re looking for a real tow hook then go with ARB

    I have those and they are mainly cosmetic or a very light tow (no yanking). The product is pretty sturdy but where it attaches to the frame is basically a sheet metal box tube.

    I got the demon brackets and D rings when I took off my air damn off. Also put on the TRD skid plate. What someone said earlier is true. The frame member attachment point for the demon brackets is hollow sheet metal. I wouldn't be worried about the hooks and demon brackets, I'd be worries about how much stress that hollow frame member could stand. If it were anything other than very light recovery I'd get out my recover hitch receiver, assuming going from the rear was appropriate for the situation.
