So, having ripped the bullbar off my deli I'm not really interested in doing the work to fit another one.

However i do need recovery points on it for the many times i get stuck when doing something silly off road...

Has anyone ever fitted some sturdy points to the front of their deli?

I'd be interested in this, too, as I need something similar.

The Series 2, which does not use a bullbar, has a towing eye welded to the inside of the chassis, so you could probably weld a plate on the outside opposite the inner chassis bolt position then fix a U shaped towing eye there.

Alternately there was an item years back on the Oz club about doing a modification to the bullbar towing eyes.

Luckily I kept a copy of the piccy's:-

I thought there was a long thread on Delica Recovery points / bridles etc. but I can't find it anywhere on the forum now.  Could the thread have been deleted?

the thread had some weblinks to vids of Delica's being towed / towing other 4x4s in a recovery situation.

Someone was saying to not use their towbar as a recovery point as it bent it.

I have an inkling that was on the Aussie club site. †Confused, but quite a while back, so my memory is vaque on it. †Crying or Very sad

Then again that is what happens with Necroposting. †Very Happy

Bent tow bars have been discussed somewhere as Buzr6mille and myself both have them doing none snatch.

These are the pages from the Original Japanese Mitsu manual on towing, and their UK equivalent

The first illustration on each shows the welded on towing hooks for the Series 2, i.e. without the grill guard.

Be very careful using either the front or rear standard points, and the towball/ towbar shouldn't be used for recovery, tho I have, and its bent the towbar  Shocked  Shocked

Oh, I've even seen the bullbar ripped from the chassis when a Delica broke down and was getting towed up onto a flat bed recovery truck  Shocked  Shocked  Shocked
