Stock Recovery Points

I have a 98 cherokee classic.. I dont have a hitch yet. Is there a way I could fabricate recovery points to the rear bumper or what? I have a bumper up front and I know you can use the front sway bar. What can I do for the rear?


If your having truck problems, I feel bad for you bud, I got 99 problems but my jeep ain't one.

If you don't have adequate, safe, and secure tow points, hook your tow strap to anything else you want ripped loose from your Jeep, like your sway bar.


Buy some safe and secure tow points, and correctly install them.

I have D-ring clevis tow points in front using the original factory tow brackets, and have a Class-III hitch on back.

What makes you think it's a good idea to use the sway bar as a recovery point?!?
And the bumpers aren't exactly the best place to pull from either, unless they have additional frame rail attachment points built into them...
You should get something like this for the front: http://www.quadratec.com/products/76045_802.htm (and hooks, of course)
And a receiver hitch for the rear: http://www.quadratec.com/products/72016_801_07.htm
OR bumpers with recover points and frame rail tie-ins, like this: http://www.jcroffroad.com/product/XJMISC/UNF.html or this: http://www.jcroffroad.com/product/XJMISC/UNR.html

Use the sway bar for a tow point is you want both brackets instantly removed. There are no good tow points on a stock XJ .
The easiest and cheapest rear tow point is to grab a Factory trailer hitch from a Pick A Part JY. Paid $20 for one, Get both of the in-frame nut plates.
