If it is anything like my Hilux, there will be a hook or closed loop attached to the chassis at the front and nothing at the rear. The owner's handbook will list the hook/loop as a towing point. That is where you usually attach a winch.

Don't confuse it with a tie down point designed for transport only. The book will point out the difference if it has both.

Many people use the towbar as the attachment point at the rear but never attach a snatch strap to a tow ball.

If you email or ring Toyota Australia, they will tell you they do not recommend snatch straps and their cars are not rated for them.

If you are not experienced in winching and snatching then I recommend you get expert training either through a 4wd training school or a major club. Both, particularly snatching, can be very dangerous if you don't know what you are doing.

Look up snatch strap accidents on Utube and you will get some idea of what can happen.

The fronts the problem area. I've got an idea in mind but I'm keeping it pretty close to my chest for now.

Not sure whether 75's had the same, but the 78/79series have two thick loops bolted to the chassis at 3 points on each side with HT bolts. For snatching I'd use a bridle.
