Anyone had any luck getting a recovery point to fit with a genuine Toyota Bullbar.

Just tried to fit the old recovery points off my 76 to my 79. The 76 had ARB bar and the newer 79 has Toyota bar. The Toyota bar is obstructing the way by about 5mm.

Cheers

I went to TJM and they said " we have nothing to fit a 79 series" Went to ARB and they fitted one on the passenger side front for $120 dollars. This is on my 2017 single cab 79 with toyota steel bar

I have the same problem with my 2012 79 series with a Toyota Alum. Bar. Cannot get anything to fit and have just left the originals on.
So far have not had a need to use front recovery points. Rear tow bar recovery point has had plenty of use towing Patrols, Rangers. Hilux's, BT50's etc, never had to tow out a Landcruiser.

That should get a reaction!!!

I towed a Range Rover out of the sand a few years ago with my 79 series.
The reason he got bogged was he had it in snow mode.
He was amazed when my mate showed him the sand mode and it lifted the Range Rover a few inches before we towed him out.

I fitted a pair to my 2015 single cab, with Toyota bull bar. Don’t recall where I purchased them from, but may have been Superior Engineering, in Deception Bay. Someone else less forgetful than I may recognise the design/paint colour. I had to modify them slightly to get the bolts to line up, a little bit of grinding on one or two edges.

Never needed to use them yet, but have a bridle onboard to equalise pull on both points.

Hi Paul,
Like Bob has said, Superior Engineering may have what you look for. (Link here)
I had them on the Troopy but no ARB bar. And like Bob, never needed them. But........!!
Just ask Superior.... they will know.

Cheers
