    I took note of the work done to ad another plate, that got me thinking of doing the same thing, the same way.
    I have a couple of questions.
    Who can i get them from off here and how much, you can PM me if you wish.
    Second question is this.
    Has any one adapted the plates together, by that i mean a cross member from 1 plate to the other using the existing unused holes in the plates ?
    I intend to machine a bar of 50 mm dia with tapped holes in the ends to slip in between the plates to remove any independent side action when both are used together as one ?
    Any feed back on the idea will help.

    Threedogs is the man to speak to. He makes the originals and would probably be able to answer any questions you have re fitment options.

    Threedogs is the man for recovery plates. Also I can't see how your idea would work or be better than having just recovery plates. Seem a lot of work for something that will be no more efficient than two plates...Just a thought.

    Edit :beaten by the man himself. Also upon re-reading your post I think i get the concept. Seem logical but using a bridle strap should take out any sideways movement in a snatch. Unless your getting snatched out on an angle.

    I see your point but I'm pretty sure the points of which TD's recovery points attach to is not far from a factory cross rail. Given that and that you usually have a bull bar fitted up front to hold chassis apart I think a spreader bar across the chassis would be pointless.
    And a waste of money.
