I had this problem as the hooks sold in the 4wd shops have the bolt holes too close together and i didn't want to drill the chassis either.

I found some second hand ones ($5 each) at the 4wd shop that were removed to fit bull bars.

This was discussed on another thread the other day 6/4/03 (page 2) ,

Just a word of warning the hooks that come on the vehicles standard are not usually rated hooks. Toyota for sure are not rated and I would think most of the other manufacturers would be the same so you need to take all safety precausions if using theses hooks.We have so little time to enjoy our land

Yes the standard "loop" tie down hooks are not rated and shouldn't be used for recoverys, Mine where bolted on so i replaced them.
