don't tow from your axles. thats bad, you'll have lots of guys tell you why its bad, but just know that it is.

Go to a junk yard and get yourself a rear reciever hitch for your jeep. Thats a good solid recovery point on the rear.

Rustys has some front tow hooks that you can use.

if you're really in a bind, slap something around your rear shackle. but get hooks. i just got a pair of factory brackets/hooks and have been lucky to not have gotten stuck enough yet to require a pull.

go to a junkyard and buy the front towhook kit, mine cost me 10 bucks.

its an inner brace behind the front 2 bumper bolts, a different bumper brackets that ties into the frame, and a lower bracket that goes from subframe to towhook. It's a very stout kit for not much cash.
