    Hey, exia, great question! It’s funny but most of the after market recovery points aren’t rated either, so there you go. Sure, they look tough, and probably are, but how tough? I was always taught when you hook up something to make a mental note of the weak points. A recovery is only as strong as its weakest link.
    So, to answer your question on damage, the most important damage from any recovery is the potential of injury to anyone standing around or involved in the recovery. Btw, this does happen. It’s so easy to have something fail. When I see actual recoveries happening out in the trail it’s amazing more aren’t injured. No one is very safety conscious. If someone is recovering your vehicle, and using the OEM loops in front, make sure you have a line dampener fastened over the line being used. Make sure that you’ve got the vehicle fully released from the obstacle before attempting a recovery, and I’m sure those loops will be fine.
    In my own case I have a Victory 4X4 aluminum blitz bumper with two pretty skookum, but unrated recovery points. Are they fool proof? Who knows? But, I left my OEM loops on there, too, just in case.

    The problem I have with these is I have a sway bar relocation kit on mine and these go under the sway bar.

    Emailed Josh at Apex last night for ETA on these (new batch in powdercoating, available later this week or early next). Putting my order in later this week.......

    Thanks for the catch - I have front sway relo brackets as well. Will keep searching.

    I had the Apex and then I snapped one of the main bolts just tightening it. I took them off and said I will take my chances with the stock ones.

    Well, hey Dallas. Good to see life after the Recon is treating you and your Aussie well. Swing back by the old forum once in a while.

    Did you return them to Apex? If not, they're cluttering up your workbench and you're willing to sell them, send me a PM.
