My tow loop tie down loop failed sending the shackle rocketing into the center of UB's spare (a perfect spot really) with velocity to deform and bash off his license plate, bend the bracket and make a divot in the rim. It could have ended really badly. Its clear that my loop had cracked most of the way through earlier. I think they are fine tow points, just needing to be part of preventative maintenance. They get smacked on rocks a lot.

Edit: I took the photos down because I want to do some more research on them and not hijack an otherwise all-fun run thread! I'll start a new thread later.
