Smittybuilt Tube bumper tow hook options

I have a front Smittybuilt tube bumper W/hoop on a 05 TJ X. Anyone running this? If so what are you doing for a tow option in the front?

Bump....If I did get the tow hooks on top the bumper mounts they would be behind the hoop. Not sure what to do.....

I don't have that, but did it not come with recovery points on it? Like D rings?

It's a tube bumper so there are no D rings or recovery point that I can see. I did plan on ordering A rear bumper with D rings since that one is stock. Do you think it's a requirement for front and back recovery points? I can see myself stuck or something where I can only be pulled from the front.

I would definitely advise it... Better to be safe than sorry. The more strong recovery points the better

I use my hitch in rear, haha, and front you can always run a strap through the hollow part of front of frame where you bolt on. not sure about how good of an idea this is... haha

you could also run and "I" or "Eye" hole bolt up through the bottom, if they make one heavy duty enough to use as a recovery point. hmmm

I like the Idea of attaching hooks to the bottom. I guess they would be more prone to slip off but that"s what I'm going to do. Thanks for the advice.
