Killer,

you need rocker protection and some tow hooks. The cables look like they would do a lot of damage to your jeep if you were pulled from an angle.

you cant put tow hooks on the unibody like the ones on wranglers, but those hooks are very strong, and the cable as well. It had no problem pulling out my brother's bronco when it was stuck in some goop, so i think they are pretty strong. (I believe that cable is actually winch wire? am i right killer?)

To put the tow hooks on the unibody, jeep had specific brackets made for this. I had them before the ARB.

It looks like the cable would bend the end of the uniframe rails causing damage if pulled from an angle.

you guys would be suprised. I have towed from angles and I was worried, but no damage was done. They did also pull a full size bronco out of some crappy mud, like Clemsonxj said. They are sweet for only 20 bucks. The rocker protection would be a good idea. They are on the way.

Yeah his tow hooks are pretty beefy they pulled me out of a hole at hush hole, but every so often they will make his bumper fall off but then it reveals the swampthing sticker so its all gravy.

as for the tow hooks it's not the bending of the unibody i'd be worried about. what will happen over time is a kink will develop in the wire where it is always bending through the hole in the unibody that it passes through. a kink in a wire, live a rope, severely weakens it because it causes only one side, the side that has been streched to go around the bend to take all the weight. now if you ever yank some pretty hard or even wrose happen to suddenly jerk the line it might break, turning it into quite a deadly weapon.

i work in technical theater as a carpenter, stagehand, ect. we use aircraft cable (that's what the wire is called) to fly senery all the time. we use special preformed loops that the wire wraps around to make a gradual turn and not a kink.
