True but do you really want to expose the radiator, oil cooler, inter-cooler and A/C evaporator to sticks and stones? The 2011 models have more metal up front so it may not be as big an issue for them. They also have two easily accessible hooks. Smug bastards!

Re: No tow hooks? Front Recovery Soluition help

Hey, just thought I would share the photo of my hook with my snatch strap fitted as I know there is some concern about whether or not some straps will fit on the hook. Mine is a brand new (yet to be used in anger) 8t Ironman strap and it fits on, but it is tight to get on and off, not something you can do in a hurry. Based on the other photos in this thread it looks like the Ironman has a pretty small/thin loop, I've attached a few photos for comparisons sake of the loop sitting on a leather glove. It's probably worth mentioning that I picked this strap up from my local Ironman dealer for about $120 in a recovery kit which included 9m 8000kg snatch strap, two 4.7 bow shackles, recovery hitch, leather gloves and reinforced carry bag - pretty good value I reckon.

I have a 8t Opposite Lock strap which fits without too much mucking around.

That looks pretty tidy.

Re: No tow hooks? Front Recovery Soluition help

Hmmm.

I've now seen a few people post photos with their strap attached so it looks like the TJM strap I have is thicker than most and seems to be one of the few that won't fit.

Looks like I'm off to buy a new strap on the weekend...

Re: No tow hooks? Front Recovery Soluition help

These photos are to compare the loop of my Just Straps 8,100kg MBS strap with Jasman's Ironman strap. The loops are about the same size but the Ironman strap is more tightly stitched which should make it easier to slip onto the hook. Similar photos of other branded straps would be appreciated.

Re: No tow hooks? Front Recovery Soluition help

I got a Just Straps snatch strap on Friday and it does fit over the hook - however it is still pretty difficult.

Re: No tow hooks? Front Recovery Soluition help

GMWK2 - You got you car from Penrith as well ddidnt you? Who did you speak to about the recovery hook?
i just called the sales guy who sold me my car and he said he had no idea what was happening with the hooks and sounded like it was the first he had really heard about it.

He did send me a bulletin that has part numbers for recovery hook and nudge bars, but it doeant help me at the moment.

Allypally - So how did you go about getting it? Just took it in for service and mentioned it or what?
