I have a 1998 toyota prado with a toyota cruisa bullbar.The only problem i have is when they fitted the bullbar there is no towing hook at all.Is there a place where i can buy a hook to fit it as i haven`t got the original one?

Hi boggle
Does your bar have what look like eyes 'hanging down' near to where the bar is attached to the chassis?
Assuming yes ... you have a couple of choices.
1 is to use those tie downs as points to which you attach rated shackles & a bridle; &
2 is to have someone cut those eyes (tie downs) off so that the chassis bolts which are 'under / behind' the eyes are 'available' & buy rated recovery hooks to attach there with rated bolts.
Hope that helps (I use a bridle if that helps)

G'day Boggle,

98 is a 90 series (though you should know that) not a 120 as has been mentioned. I have a 96 model 90 series, with alloy roo bar.
Left and right of the bottom of the first bash plate (starts under radiator) you should have a wave of 3/4 inch steel. These should have two holes side by side. You can purchase rated recovery hooks with HT bolts from Bushranger distributors for about $22. Probably many other distributors but that's what I got. Don't hesitate mate, sort it out and you will make it easier for yourself and/or others if the time comes....and it probably will. Grab two left and right with an equaliser strap for better load distribution.
