    i have a sport...it doesn't have a hook, but it has a beefy loop on the driver's side and some other loop-like attachment point on the passenger side that i use quite frequently.

    I think the loop on the drivers side is intended to be used as a tie town for transporting the truck on a trailer. I wouldn't use it for any type of recovery.

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    Don't use it for more than pulling your push lawn mower out of the muck - Unless you want a shackle in someone's back window! :)
