Recovery, 93-97

Looked through my user manual and all I could find was something about sticking a 2x4 in front of the rearend and strapping to that, in the case you were to get stuck(I know none of us ever do lol) what do you attach your tow strap to on your 93-97 ranger, I don't have a reciever yet and the truck doesn't have tow hooks so I'm stumped any help would be appreciated

kidding, I have a strap, then I have some heavy duty line that ill run to the frame, then to the strap, then to the frame, then the strap, and ill do this for all 60 feet of rope and that usually works. The rope means I can attach to any point, and/or spread the load between both sides of frame if I so choose

I've pulled my truck out of a ditch (it was while towing a boat trailer, uphill. ) but just wrapping the strap around the front axle. The pig cover is part of the frame, so just throw a strap around it, and it'll fit under the valence.
