Havent quite decided what im gonna do about recovery point but i know i will definatly use it to tow with or throw a bike rack on. Im thinking of throwing a thick walled square tubing bolted between the framerails with 2 tow hooks on it or somthing for recovery....anyone have any suggestions on recovery points and hitches or where to put them??

thats what i was thinking, for some reason i never really like the idea of having two tow points on a bumper jus cuz if you hook up on one side i get the feeling that it would twist the frame or something in some strange way...
