the importance of soft shackles, kinetic rope and solid recovery points

Recommended Posts

Currently I too have been using the recovery points that come built in with the vehicle and have had no issues at all. I too like @Gaurav bhai tend to start slow and build up the tug strength with every pull. I always engage in 4 Low for a tug so I am never over 20 KPH. Some recoveries is better to dig a bit to have lesser load on the pulling vehicle. @G.huz if you find any good solution please do share, its always better to be safe than sorry.

you've been in this sport for way longer time, and driving the Pathfinder for longer time as well, am sure if there is anything out there you would've done it.

i'll check around, if i find something the made sense to me, i'll share for sure.

They even sell them with the bridle for the path finders.

you know how search goes man, you start with recovery point, you end up with bumpers and skid plates and LEDs and tents and camping, and travel destinations... it's painful

but i saw all sort of weird shapes, i don't even know if they fit in my car, the best thing to do is just search around in shops, do "window shopping" see what they do, what they have, get an idea of the cost.

For popular cars you can get ready-made points and hooks and trailer bars but for some model's you could order them through internet from places where those cars are making storms as it's their market so it must be catered to there and the rest you can always custom make them if you have a little bit of imagination time and patience...just remember the idea is to have good thickness , surface mating and it should fix nicely there should be no play not even a mm worth once it's bolted...if it moves then sure someday it gonna tear away...
