got these in the mail yesterday.. they will be welded underneath my hitch for a shackle recovery point. I only needed one for my jeep but they came in sets of two so I guess I will put one my the other WJ in case my wife gets stuck lol

got them from a fabrication company in Spanish fork they were the cheapest I could find on the Internet and I had no idea they were from Utah until I placed my order lol. I figured this would be a great recovery point and cheaper than ones that goes into the hitch
