old Jack - thanks for the input mate. Tow bars going on in two weeks so I'll start using the rear hitch receiver for recoveries from now on. I haven't noticed any deformation on the hook but probably best to play it safe.

No problems. Rear tow hooks will be removed when towbatpr is fitted so they will no longer be an option.

I looked at whether to transverse chassis tube could be used as per my previous post and yes it could but you are likely to do damage to the lower bumper cover unless you have a bullbar fitted. It is better than losing you PS to an incoming tide in an emergency.

I see no easy way of fitting aftermarket recovery points, the chassis is only 2.5-3mm thick and mounting area to spread the load is limited.

Do you have pics of the "transverse chassis tubes" ?

If you have a bull bar what would be better to use ? The factory points or the transverse chassis tubes ?

How do you convince a 4x4 club that you don't need yellow recovery point points ?

In "blue" in your post below.

Transverse tube runs between the left and right chassi rail just behind the forward body mounts.

Factory points with bridle/equaliser is ok as long as it is not an extreme snatch recovery which should be avoided unless it is an emergency. Using the transverse tube will require either a fabric tube sling or synthetic rope sling that is about 6 metres in length and well protected at the edge of the transverse tube, with a SWL of 8,000kgs assuming you are using an 8,000kg snatch strap or kinetic recovery rope.


How do you convince a 4x4 club that you don't need yellow recovery point points?
I would ask for the engineering qualifications and calculations for your vehicle, from the person insisting on aftermarket rated recovery points or find another club!

Alternatively I can sell you a can of very overpriced yellow paint that is rated
I have seen Mitsubishi welded factory hooks stretch from excessive loads but never a factory welded loop fail but I have seen sheared bolts and bent aftermarket rated recovery points in both yellow and red!

In the second photo I notice the attachment nuts are not done up tight enough to compress the spring washers. This recovery point uses 4x what appear to be 10.9 Grade HT bolts in 10mm diameter, each of these bolts has a proof load of 4900kg so a single bolt is almost as strong as the rated recovery point at 5,000kg.


I doubt if any bullbar could be fitted with these Ironman recover points.

ARB's new September price list lists recovery points for the Pajero Sport now. Might be worth giving your local stockist a call and seeing what they can do

Why is a recovery point needed (last photo) when there is a loop right there?

Because Mitsubishi refuse to call it a recovery point, so too many people refuse to believe it can be used for snatching.
