2012 GC with two front hooks!
 
5 Attachment(s)
Hey guys,

Thought I might share a few pics of a great weekend of christmas beers, 4wding and some welding.

These were created by my father in-law who is a avid 4wd enthusiast and felt sorry for me not having any front recovery points.

The recovery hooks from supercheap, some decent 10mm/8mm steel and 10mm bolts from an engineering shop to the chassis.

The front now looks tougher and with the bigger tyres it now does set the Jeep with a proper off-road stance. The hooks do sit out nicely.

Knew it was only a matter of time before someone with a good solid engineering background would come up with something as incredible as this. Well done mate to your father in law and yourself for a great ENGINEERED solution. I am sure what you have created is more than man enough for the job. No need for months of fannying around in a science lab to come up with a fix. Some good old fashoined engineering ingenuity and it looks like you have a wiinner. Love this fourm.:thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

Interesting also that the hooks look like a true pair, one opposite hand to the other that suggests there is existing holes divers side?

Very good effort and probably more than strong enough, however I personally would have liked to see at least one part a continuous piece from one bolting position to the other. Relying intirely on weld is never a good practice. Cheers

Thanks for the post. Great job. Any chance of of a sketch with dimensions plate size and hole diameters? I would like to spend a bit of time in my garage and make a couple too.
Regards,
Mcgivor

I am sure if anyone who has the skills required to make these, they could easily sell them for a profit.
