    I learn every day on this forum. Found the hook under the seat when I bought Attila and wondered where it belonged! If the HT bolts are still in place it goes on tonight!

    You are a bit far away, but don't use the factory flat point tow hook in anger it will snap and cause damage and god forbid injury, I could find out how much to post to Sth Africa. What year ,motor and bullbar have you got.

    Attila is a '99 4.5L with a nudgebar and integrated Warn winch. Model details I will dig around for (only had her for a month so still feeling my way around). Thanks for the offer to help; really appreciate it.

    Yours will have the larger radiator, not sure if you have two captive nuts under the chassis both sides up the front, if not. one bolted to the inside of chassis rail will keep you safe.
    take it you're rhd over that way. would make no difference anyway .I'll go to PO today and get best price .

    Thanks for the guidance and help. Thsi forum has been amazing. Solved two other electrical problems this week on other threads; relatively simple problems that would otherwise cost me a packet using a dealer (few and far between here). Yes, we are also RHD and it is the one with the long radiator.
    For what its worth, we bought Attila 2nd hand because we want to see how much we like the idea of upgrading our outdoor lifestyle (we previously had an Isuzu doublecab) before we go out and spent a packet on a new wagon. I plan to retire in about 5 years time and would like to tour Africa south of the equator (some of the most amazing mountains, deserts, swamps and jungles). In preparation we intend using Attila to learn about all aspects of 4x4 skills, safety and maintenance without the worry of damaging or wrecking a small fortune in the process. Once we are happy with our skills we can then upgrade to something newer.

    I always understood the front chassis hook and rear loop to be rated for recovery as it states that in the owners manual. I am a bit dubious using it, but have used it in the past. I will replace with proper once to have piece of mind though.
