The front recovery point on our Rangie Vogue looks a bit weak and I assume that it is for towing only. What is normally fitted to the front of a Rangie of that era for front recoveries.

I know that there is plenty of plastic in the way as well that will limit where we can go before we break it.

We will be using the Hayman Reece towbar/pin for rear recoveries.

That 'recovery point' may just be a tie-down fitting. Same problem on my Defender 90- what are those Poms thinking, maybe that they never retrieve a vehicle - so I am putting on the bullbar, and then that will be problem solved. Also got the HR towbar which solves the problem at the rear. Cheers TonyT

I looked underneath and there are tie downs there but I still feel that the so called recovery point is more a tow point. Looks like a visit to a 4WD specalist like I did with the Troopy. Our bullbar is one of the Politically Correct plastic ones - that is what it came with and she who must be obeyed does not want to change it.

Why would you need recovery for a vehicle that is used to zip between the village and the estate old boy....

Not us, all our 4WD's are used for what they were designed??? for ie going off road. We take the hard roads between the village and estate.. Even today. we took some forestry roads to get home rather than the 4 lane road we usually drive over. Last time we were in that area, we had to dig ourselves out but all OK today.

For anything rangie have a look at this site www.rangerovers.net all sorts of info for p38 rangies.
you have 2 tie down points under the front and one tow point. not really made for recovery but is pretty strong. have seen a rangie winched over a hill from the otherside by this point , yes it did bend a little but no it didnt snap.
