    What does everyone use as their rear recovery point? I was checking out a receiver d-ring but had some concerns about the strength of the receiver. What is everyone using?

    Shackle receiver, unless you put a plate bumper on.

    If you want to go cheap this should work. 9.99 from HF

    D-ring receiver hitch....Harbor Freight SKU 66212

    EDIT....Originally I had a web site click on listed to the above product...........it did not work so just go to HF and enter the SKU and you should see a cheap D-ring hitch.

    The rear receiver is very strong, no worries. The front is where the problem is. No good solutions without a plate bumper or front receiver install.

    I went with the Bullet Proof mount as well, I hope I don't run into problems with it.

    I bought that HF D-Ring hitch about four years ago and have used it to pull logs/brush etc on my property. Used it once to get a F-150 out of some deep snow. It's cheap and it works, like most HF products. It's rated for 10K lbs.
