Pintle Hook

Just wondering if anyone has one in the hitch on their jeep and if its safe to use one as a recovery point. Thanks!

I would just get a D-ring hitch. This way the rope/chain/strap will not slip off and risk damaging something or hurting someone. When I need to use my recovery strap from the rear, I actually push the loop part into my hitch and slide the bolt through to hold the strap in. Works great and I didn't spend any money

That's what I was thinking too but figured I'd ask. I just kinda like the look of the pintle hook. Kinda gives the jeep an older look to it in my mind at least.

A good pintle setup won't slip or let go. But you'd need to make absolutely sure that the attachment point will stand the strain of being a recovery point.

Of course. I won't be doing any recovery with my rear bumper until I get some frame tie-ins. Just gotta swallow the $50 it'll cost as I don't have the tools or ability to weld. But it'd be a pintle with a 30,000lbs. towing capacity or better.

I got one. I have to add a steel bracket to the crossmember, but I'm sure it will handle the punishment:

What lindel said... it will only be as strong as how well it is mounted.
