  • NJ Pajero Recovery points

    I have a LWB NJ escape with ARB steel bar and lights.
    Don't trust the towing hook provided to us a snatch strap on...

    Can't find anyone in Perth who sells brackets etc to create recovery EYE's (not hooks) for snatch strapping of the front of the vehicle.

    Does anyone know where I can get a couple of "quality" brackets made
    that will do the Job

    Preferably in Osborne Park or Kewdale

    Want to use a short 2.5 mtr strap as a bridle to distribute the weight
    and "shackle" to recovery eye's to reduce the risk of loosing a strap during recovery (I know the dangers of using shackles however) use safety ropes to stop a flyer if I have a failure)

        Have you tried Parkside towbars - I'd be surprised if they couldn't knock something up for you.

          In all my years of being on this forum I have yet to hear of a failure on the factory recovery points on any model Pajero. But hey if you feel more comfortable with another setup.....go for it

            One of the only places that would do the job was Coastal 4x4 in Jandakot.
            Many 4x4 places said it could not be done.
            In the end they cut of the LHS tie down and welded a H/D plate to the frame
            after cutting away part of the front protector. Then attached a Black Rat recovery hook.
            They did a good neat strong job at $100

              I would agree. The factroy hook is pretty strong and permanently fixed to the chassis. If something went wrong, a 'D' shackle and bracket makes a rather large bullet!!

                made my own brackets to mount recovery hooks onto out of 75x75x10mm angle iron bolted through the chassis at the bullbar mounting points using high tensile bolts also made rear one's the same way only they bolt onto the tow bar mounting points most expensive part was buying 4 recovery hooks at $15.00 ea. got the angle iron from a steel place cut to the required length 4 pieces cost $10.00(they were cut from off cuts) the bolts & nuts cost me less than $20.00.
                the end result looks very similar to what ARB sells to suit a patrol or l'cruiser only a lot cheaper

                      I just added some Black Rat recovery hooks to the chasis rails where the ARB bullbar attaches.
                      For memory, on my NJ LWB, the lower bolt on the bullbar is bolted on the inside of the chasis tube only, with 2 behind it that mount all the way through an existing bracket on top of the chasis rail.
                      I removed the lower bolt in the rail, drilled through to the other side of the rail. Then drilled a new hole through for the 2nd bolt the hook uses. High tensile bolts through both holes right through the chasis rail. Hooks mounted on outside of each rail.
                      To make a better job of it, some steel tube spacers within the rails would be the go. But even without them I think it is very sturdy.
                      Don't buy a cheap drill bit like I did though - or if you do get 2 or 3 of them...

                        took my time but here are some pics of the recovery points i made for my nj pajero. its a piece of 75x75x10mmx100mm long angle with rated hooks. front bolt through the chassis at bullbar mounting point and rears bolt onto the chassis were the tow bar is bolted. total cost for 8 was just over $120.
