    My son and I are starting build up a 1983 K20 Camper Special. We bolted a tow hook to the rear frame, and would like to add a recovery point to the front.

    As there are no pre-drilled holes in the front of the frame, it appears that there may be room in front of the spring shackle to drill a couple of holes and mount a tow hook up there. The bottom edge of the bumper is a little in the way, so we may have to grind that back a bit.

    Does anyone have suggestions (or preferably photos) of front recovery points on a similar vehicle?

    Thanks,

    Bud

    What you're describing is exactly what I did. I went around like that for awhile, then decided they were too low. So I moved them behind the bumper, and cut big holes in the bumper. I like them there, I just had to cut the holes extra big to be able to get the chain in.
    Sorry I don't have any pics.
