An ARB recovery point for your vehicle can address the issues surrounding OE and generic aftermarket tow points and their unsuitability for a range of recovery situations. ARB’s engineers have developed the recovery point in conjunction with standard bumpers and ARB protection bumpers to use points within the chassis to achieve a 17,500lbs rating. Four mount points are included per recovery point to ensure that there is no torsional twist on angled pulls.
Each ARB recovery point includes an engineered ‘Recovery Train’ in which each vehicle specific recovery point is rated for use with a 4.75t rated bow shackle and 17,500lbs snatch strap. For peace of mind and safety, ARB recovery points are a reliable solution.
The recovery point has been designed to either work with the factory front bumper, factory skid plates, ARB bumper and ARB skid plate systems.application guide/fitting notes
Each ARB recovery point undergoes considerable research and design involving actual vehicle chassis samples and CAD data relating to critical front sections of the vehicle. Dozens of designs are explored, with the more promising models built into prototypes and tested on the actual vehicle chassis using ARB’s various load and destructive testing equipment.
Some vehicle models demand very complex mounting systems to ensure fitment does not affect air bag deployment in the event of an accident. With months of design and testing dedicated to each individual recovery point, ARB’s engineers ensure that the crash pulse of the vehicle remains unaffected, whilst also ensuring the recovery points are fitted in the optimal location to handle the stresses experienced during vehicle recovery.
ARB recovery points are rated in an angled direction of pull and this has been achieved for angles up to the maximum turn angle of the front wheels of the vehicle. The design features a long slot as it allows the bow of the shackle to be fed through and the strap attached via the pin instead of the bow. This allows the shackle to pivot within the recovery points to avoid side loads on the pin.
