They look like a verticle version of mine. I agree about pushing them back and making them recessed.

Thanks for the comments. Not sure what year they came off of. @ klc to get unstuck of course?
We mocked them up a lot of different ways, i just kept coming back to this one.

Not bad. Looks pretty beefy. I probably would have mounted them horizontal though.

not a fan of the vertical mounting position. But i guess it'll help in recovering your little 2wd from the mud

Its a unique position to put them in. I like it because its different.

As long as it functions as a legit tow point, and it looks good to you, then voila!!

Momma always said if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say it at all.
