    Definitely. My biggest ‘concern’ is the engine/transmission performance. I’ve been researching the OV Tune. Wondering if I will need it.

    I hear your point and am now concerned about this as well.

    I'd like to hear from anyone who has real world experience with these. I understand they are not full on recovery points -- meaning I am not going to pull someone up or out of a 15 foot ditch. That would require a lot more equipment and probably something like the ARB recovery point.

    But are these purely aesthetic? I hope not. I am looking for something that might help me slowly pull someone out of snow or mud. Nothing too major. I go off road on some very rocky trails but really don't see a situation where I will need to do something like a full on overland recovery.

    I was looking for something better than what is stock on the truck for basic bad weather / light recovery. From what I can tell they also wrap around the sub frame so there is a bit more strength there.

    Anyone use these to actually tow or pull someone? I would really appreciate hearing from you!

    @caribe makaira is a lifesaver when it comes to this stuff. I did the same thing on my brakes, and he helped me out of that one. It's a great community here, so I'm just glad I can help out.

    Ordered 2 new things.
    1. Black rear bumper ends, that will fully delete the chrome.
    2. Diode Dynamics SS3 sport fogs. I been eyeing them since before I put the yellow films on the fogs, which I really did to see if I liked that better than white ones. Must be a holiday sale cus I got $30 off the regular price. Not really needed but a good score. I guess it will be my birthday and Xmas gift to me.

    I don't have 1st hand experience doing a recovery with the front end, at all. So take my opinion with a huge grain of salt.

    I've been watching a lot of Matt's 4x4 recovery (Winder Towing) on YouTube. He has to recover a lot of stock vehicles. His advice and practice always seems to be to use either both tie down points or to use the lower control arm.

    For me, I ended up going with the ARB. It's the only recovery point that's actually rated. I want to have something to get me out of a stupid situation I put myself in without harming the truck further. The other options are to do something like the mobtown off-road front hitch or a winch bumper. All of these connect to the frame and not just the subframe.

    All that said, I'm still waiting for a "I ripped my front end off" thread. So, maybe I just worry too much.

    The biggest issue with using these as "recovery points" is the single bolt.. Unless you weld them on, but that negates the ability to upgrade to a full bumper later on. Even though I have them on my truck I would use the hitch way before I would trust these for the same task. As others have said the ARB does use all the mounting holes but its only on one side.. I'm pretty sure these would pull something on a flat surface in a straight line. But that is seldom the option when recovering.

    ARB ties to the truck's frame. That's the key difference.

    Got the new truck cleaned up and (almost) ready for winter. Also was able to take advantage of some Black Friday discounts a local dealer was offering on parts and placed an order for the OEM tailgate lock kit.

    Since @MESO is having a Black Friday sale on Saturday, I placed an order for a gas hole.

    Maybe I should have bought 87 of them at that discounted price.
