I've got a 4WD XLT that I go exploring with ( makes sense right?) Anyway, I was out exploring and found a little mud and well if you care to see the results here. I have the tow package and a hitch with a recovery hook, I was wondering however if anyone added a recovery point to the front framework of the vehicle. I don't have the lower valence ( I like SUVs to go over curbs ) so I don't have to worry about it. This Explorer is still pretty capable off road for what it is, I take it in sand quite a bit but this mud/clay was finally too much for it and had to be yanked out the back. In a similar situation where I'd be stuck and couldn't be pulled out the back I'd be stuck because I can't be pulled out the front from the little tow hook. Anybody have any experience with this hook by chance?
