    Mudski - Good Job - looks like an excellent fitout, and you can never be too sure with recovery points unless you know they are done right, and yours are done right.

    Thanks for the detailed information on how to fit them too, as this may help someone else who might be tempted not to do them the right way.

    Hi Mudski look like copies, mine would have a yellow sticker on them.
    but apparently you're allowed to copy anything and get away with it.
    Good fit up too. First to have these fitted to a GU.
    Are they rated????

    I have that shape from TJM (your originals threedogs :-) ) that I fitted to my Mav/Q. They are fairly deep. Where I have mounted them in the Mav is on the bolts that hold the front bar on, and I think the recovery points are now the lowest point at the front.

    Putting them further back where mudski did would preserve the approach angle.

    Mudski, thanks for taking the time to prepare the report and clear photos. Nice work!

    I dunno threedogs. It had something on them as I can tell she's tried to clear any markings off them...Plus she did go out Coburg way a few weeks ago and there is a TJM out that way. Hmmmm. Anyhow, I'm stoked. I will soon know if they are not rated when I will need them.

    Ideally where the bullbar mounts to the chassis would be a good spot, but with different models, bullbars etc it was universally easier to try and come up with a one to fit all styles.
    I have 6 styles to suit the GQ/GU, just in case of a whacky bullbar, even have one that will bolt to the tie down point, but not sure how strong it is in the first place, if it was ok I'd only need one style
