I reinstalled the stock front tie down loops with the ARB (they make great rock feelers ). Techically they aren't recovery points either though, just tie downs. I'm trying to remember what Robbie has told me about the ARB tabs - IIRC it was that he felt they were ok for direct ahead pulls but not good for angled recoveries as they'll bend.

EDIT: I think I also recall Robbie saying to be careful of the tie down loops because if one of those were to break loose watchout
