I have the same bar, but modifed the mounts to raise it up higher to clear the winch hawse.

Mounted with Fawkes Fab shackle mounts.. hands down best option for front recovery mounts.

I've got the factory tow hooks off my 04 Overland. Just took them off. Perfectly solid. A little surface oxidation but all they need is wire wheel or brush and some spray paint. Complete set all the bolts tapping plate even the third bolt and U-nut that people seem to lose. All the bolts turn free and have been hit with penetrating grease. No bends or damage whatsoever, I never even used them. If you wanna go the stock low key route.

That bar (edit: and Tex's) is the TruckGearDirect "Super Bull Bar".

I don't sell those bull bars (or the Westin brand bars that fit our mounts); rather I make and sell some brackets that allow those bull bars to be strengthened, stabilized, relocated, and that still work with our modular shackle tabs or receiver winch mount/shackle tab combo.

As a general rule, bull bars and recovery points are otherwise mutually exclusive.

For the record, Tex modified our brackets and cut into his fascia (I think) to get the bull bar that high. I won't be redesigning the brackets to fit like that unless our behind the bumper winch mount makes it out of prototype stage (a long-term project).

99wjLimited's photos show what it looks like as a bolt-on with our stock brackets.
