Need some input

Howdy all,

Designing a bumper for my tj. Using parts from a few bumpers i liked, anyway ive attached a 3D pdf just wondering there everyone thinks i should put recovery points, one is on the face the other is under the tube.
Thats a better looking 3d file, runs by itself.

Tube is to try and tie the looks into the mopar front bumper i have on its way to me.
Square above the tube on the right is a basic model of rigid dually.

Nice looking design and add to it as you see fit. I built mine as well (and swing-away ) and yes... recovery points are a must ( for me ) both front and rear. I used 1" solid steel with 1" holes to fit the 7/8" shackle pins I have. My recovery points go from the back side of the bumpers, through the front side and welded both sides, directly parallel off the frame rails... this is on both front and rear. If you ever need to pull from this area ( or get pulled ) you are right at the frame and the prime location
