Ryan Posted January 22, 2008 Share Posted January 22, 2008 Until about an hour ago I had this type of recovery point fitted to the front of my Discovery: Then I fitted my new bumper (4x4RUS winch bumper) and found that there was no way the recovery point was going to fit in the place from whence it came . The gap between the two side plates is too narrow (by about the thickness of one of the plates) to get around the bumper and the Southdown steering guard: Do these type of recovery points come in wider versions? The bumper has two holes on the front face in line with the chassis ends. The holes are 19mm diameter. Will a swivel point fit? There are two layers of 5mm steel at this point - will that be up to the job of retaining whatever gets mounted? Are there any other alternatives? I am aware of some people bolting on gert big lifting eyes. No rush, but I need something sorted out by the time I go to Bunny Lane this Sunday, otherwise I need to make sure I only get stuck where I can be pulled out backwards! Edited to add: if someone responds and it seems a while before I do, I'm down the dump getting rid of the old bumper!! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
