I have them bolted to the side of my ARB instead of hooks, they are very solid. But with the SAS and tube bumper there's not much use for them on yours. Actually, are you planning to remake your...

In stock form, these are tie down that were used to transport your truck. They are not rated for recovery, however they are pretty strong and in a pinch it wouldn't be the worst place to tie. ...

Even grade 5 (85ksi) would be heat treated higher than the frame (maybe 30ksi), so unless you're using exceptionally small bolts wouldn't you want the mild steel bumper to yield before the bolt? ...

In Colorado the number stamped in the frame is the VIN for title purposes AFAIK.

There are documents that I believe cover you if the body tag and frame number don't match. I think that would...

Just realized the question is about recovery points and not a winch cradle. It might be better using a receiver in the middle of a bolted on bumper over frame-mounted points. I don't think it's...

I like the full width and, you know, the best part is on the road in the winter. I cut pieces of aluminum mesh and zip tie them into the hoops. Haven't had a cracked headlight in years. Since I...

In all seriousness, I wouldn't even use the term stinger. The hoop you added is highly useful. A lot of people don't like them and cut them off ARBs and stuff. But mine takes a beating and I know...

I don't think it is, but it's not unusual to use a winch cradle and a receiver. My $0.02 is the more bolts and subframe steel in the winch mount the better. There's a lot of torque if the pull...

Are you calling that grill hoop on the bumper a stinger?

If so, good!

I had visions of some silly phallic thing out there.

We like it, but it's a little uneven. Some songs are great, some just meh. The vocals are mixed a little too deep so he's kind of hard to understand. The album as a whole is solid and catchy but...

Discount will put plugs in tires. I'd try that first before replacing them with just a screw in it. It does depend on where the hole is, it must be on the tread part of the tire. If it's in the...

If there is one thing about propane that is nice, it's low maintenance. Coleman fuel appliances require service periodically. New jets, cleaning and oiling the seals, de-gunking the burner cups. A...

We have a 2-burner and a 3-burner Coleman white gas stove. I don't see any reason to change them out. Reliable, cheap, can be fixed forever. Nope, they aren't as adjustable as propane or as...

Speaking of pre-orders, I did so with the Nathaniel Rateliff and this was the note that came with it. Thought that was pretty cool.

The column called "Duplex" is where the offset type and direction is selected. It will be (none), +, -, split or off.

AFAIK there is no difference between (none) and off, although (none) is the...

On the open market I'd think $300 is quite on the low side of what they are worth. More like $500 for absolutely stock in top shape. Wish I had the scratch for them. And the room.

I assumed Craigslist. You might put a wanted ad, actually. I bet people with totaled trucks often don't know what to do with them if the insurance company doesn't take it from them.
