    I have a Gen 2 but figured this would be a good question for general off ridding.

    For anyone who’s gone frame cut, what do you do for front recovery points?

    I’m really wanting to go with a frame cut front bumper and hidden winch in the rear. Since my spare tire goes in the bed when off-roading anyways, I could just not carry the spare for daily driving. I’m always near civilization, carry a plug kit, have towing through insurance, and/or have friends who could grab my spare and runic out to me.

    You mean the tow hooks?

    Just weld them on where they'll be accessible/usable.

    Correct. I'm asking if once you expose everything up front with a frame cut if there's a good access points to use something like axle straps without having to weld on hooks.

    For getting the truck unstuck, yeah, just loop around on of the tubes of the new bumper. Or weld a tow point on somewhere. Either way.

    Obviously not a Gen 2, but here are the recovery points on my Gen 1 bumper from Forged Offroad. I don't think they make Gen 2 front bumpers though. You could do something similar.

    That’s a clean solution.

    if you’re serious get a couple of short straps around the lower control arms loop a tree saver through the shorties add a soft shackle and pull to your heart’s content
