    Oh I gotcha. Did not realize that shackle lug was specific for a soft shackle. Makes sense now that I look at the hole design. It will def still work great I’m sure just would be cautious of the full retard rugs like you said lol

    Making a small run of recovery points for family and friends. Version 2.0 is slightly longer in the shackle area to account for the radius in the 90 bend. Having a shop bend them on the hydraulic press this time!
    1/2 inch plate mild steel

    frame rail under the bumper. Where the factory recovery hook on an off-road goes. Also not pictured I make an inside plate with nuts welded on so one can mount to the drivers side as well and have two points.
    Will have to do until I build a bumper.

    gotcha, that's a beefy hook! Sucks toyota doesn't have any kind of decent recovery points from the factory.

    The OEM recovery hook is beefy AF cast steel, but it's just a hook and cant hold a shackle, also is only on the passenger side.
    IMO the week point in the system in the frame rail. 1/16 boxed steel, it's definitely going to rip before the hook does. Even with a 1/4 inch plate I make inside sandwiching the frame, I feel like I'm going to rip the rail out when using the recovery point.

    Hmmm, never knew they came with a recovery hook from Toyota, maybe I threw mine out years ago or never got one.

    Save some bucks if you need a full size spare
    Or pick up both and just order 2 more for a new set of tires and save even more

    Yeah the hook on first gens tends to bend the frame up in all kinds of fun positions.

    Exactly what I imagined would happen. Haven't had the "pleasure" of experiencing that yet.

    Could’ve gotten so cold it decided it wanted to do something. I know electronics do weird stuff when it’s cold or connected to a low battery
