    Anybody ever use the rear bumper bar (the bar under the bumper on the truck) to pull someone out? I have a D-ring receiver too, and need to get that on, but I've heard of this location too.

    I have a d ring receiver. Smitty built I think. I have only used the bar under the bumper to pull snow tubes around the neighborhood and field by my house.

    The recovery strapped pushed up on the bumper causing the black trim to push out...I popped it back in.

    Probably not ideal but you could use the holes next to the hitch to pull out a light car. They should be strong enough as they are really used for the safety chains on a trailer if it so happens to fall of the ball.

    By rear bar are you talking about the hitch supports to the frame?

    Yes it will take the load but use d-rings to clamp around the bar.

    I use a D-ring receiver. My factory hitch is massive. Not sure if you get a different one with the tow package but mine has several points that are fastened to the frame. I'd take a pic but I don't want to get cold.

    BUMP

    Since it's that time of year people get stuck in the snow.



    So question, if you are being pulled out (I know, a Tundra doesn't get stuck :muscleflexing:), what's the recovery point in the front? Is it these tow hooks, and if so, do you attach a D ring to this?

    Yes, that’s a good recovery point. Either use a shackle or choke your strap around the hoop by passing one end of the strap through the eye at the other end.

    Thought about that too; wasn't sure if the strap could handle it. Also, good practice to stick something in the loop so after the pull the strap doesn't become so tight you can't un-loop it?

    I would not use the two holes next to your hitch where your supposed to put chains. I only had a chain that could fit in there and tried pulling out a small bush. And bent it and flaked paint off. I didn’t continue trying. I’m sure if it were life and death go for it. But just carry around a few d rings and a strap. I picked up a hitch with d ring assembly and it’s only about 6” and fits under seat really easy.

    The choke works well but reduces the breaking strength of the strap/rope, not sure by how much but I'd guess 10-20%.

    It’s standard rigging practice. Called “choking”. Never binds up. Tightens when under load.
    Incidentally, those points on our vehicles are used for anchor points when transporting.

    I've used the holes next to the hitch to pull my truck up hill rutted mud road about 80 yards with a come along. Flaked the paint but no bends.
