    Hoping for some clarification. Trying to understand the differences in Off Road and Sport for attaching front shackle points.

    Can you even get 2 shackles to the front of a Tacoma while keeping it stock?
    I see the Off Road has stock points on passenger and drivers side, however they are both different styles.
    Sport has just 1 point on drivers side stock?

    Only option is a bracket BP Fabricators make? like https://www.bpfabricating.com/collections/tacoma/products/tacoma-recovery-tow-hook
    Or drill into frame for generic Amazon brackets like these:

    Of course best option is a new front bumper like C4:

    Thanks.

    Pretty sure the drivers side on the OR isn’t a recovery point. Think it’s used as a tie down when the trucks are hauled.

    I think ARB makes a tested one.

    The loop on the drivers side it for pulling the vehicle up onto a flat deck and the passenger side is for recovery. The sport has the recovery hook too, it’s just hiding behind the chin spoiler.
