Hi.
I have the front sorted out with 12000LB winch and two rated recovery points, however the rear is a tow bar and nothing else. Will this be ok for coming along on a club run ?

If it's s Reece style tow bar you can get one that slides in for around $40-$50. It's only if you get stuck there may be a problem

Hahahaha. Or just bottomed out.
As long as you're not using a Pajero you'll be fine. I know where you can get spares if you do. [WINKING FACE]

Those reece hitch recovery blocks are good for tow bars I have one.

If anyone has a single rated recovery point floating around that would suit an 80 series front chassis please let us know.
