G'day,

My 100 series has a tow bar fitted which uses all the bolt holes at the end of each chassis rails. This seems to make it impossible to fit any rear rated recovery hooks. Does anyone know if there is away around this problem? Apart from pulling the bar off.

Use the tow hitch pin. You can use this safely for vehicle recovery.

Outback ideas make a good pait of rated recovery eyes which fit onto where the original hooks were before they attached the bull bar . They are supplied with long bolts .

I got mine from Mannell Motors . Not sure if this link will work , so their address is www.mannellmotors.com.au

Looks as if the problem has been resolved but there are a couple of options including the simplest one of using the retaining pin that holds the tow ball section into the square hitch. If you do that then make sure that the metal inside the square hitch opening has been rounded off as they come with sharp edges that do nothing for snatch straps survival. Apart from that you can purchase a slide in receiver, same principal as your tow ball and the section it is mounted on. These come with either a bow shackle or recovery hook and are available from any 4WD accessory shop.

The cheapest and simplest option is to use the pin that retains the tow ball and metal section and round off the sharp edges around the square hitch
