I had one of those on my Tacoma, before I got my Pelfreybuilt bumper, and sold the truck as well...

Still looking for a good one for my '16 4R. I know plenty people just use the factory welded loop, but I like overkill... been looking at the ARB one, but that thing is pricey.... lol

You have to have a good recovery point on your vehicle before you can recover from something. Bulletproof Fabrication recovery point for a Tacoma.
I just got mine delivered. From what I get this is a simple bolt with the stock bolts but do I need them torqued to a specific spec?

That recovery point seems a little on the light side. Is it a 2 or 3 point attachment?

The attachment bolts also seem SMALL. My personal opinion is that it is marginal, and should only be used in a BRIDLE configuration. A better product design is the ARB . But it is only available for Toyota in this country. There are a couple of companies that import other similar design recovery points.
4Wheel Drive Action (Australia) HAD a recovery point failure with a similar design.

It's the same bolts for a stock recovery hook on the TRD. Anything can fail.

True...but that photo you submitted shows a 3rd hole, that has a RUST-RING halo where a 3rd bolt once was. I would at minimum put in some GRADE 8 bolts in all 3 attachment spots to the frame.

This would be cheap insurance, and increase the safety factor for all invoved.

They are metric equivalent to a grade 8., Like at 10 something in Japanese standards. Look it years ago. It's all good.
