ARB 2010+ Prado 150/Lexus GX460/5th Gen 4Runner/FJ Cruiser Recovery Point
Left Hand Side 17,500lb Rated
Designed and tested by ARB’s engineers to continue with the “Recovery Train” concept the ARB Recovery Point has been designed and developed for fitment to the Toyota Prado 150 and the Toyota FJ Cruiser. The main section of the recovery point is made from 20mm steel plate strengthened with 6mm steel plate gussets. Both left and right hand fitment recovery points have been developed and are supplied with the necessary mounting hardware.
Left and right hand fitment recovery points have been developed as they are a mirrored design.
Fitment of two recovery points have a number of advantages including:
- Access to one point if the other side of the vehicle is buried in mud or unable to be accessed safely
- Ability to pull from the side most suitable for recovery. Different recovery situations may require different set up of recovery equipment to suit either other vehicles involved in the recovery or anchor points available.
- It is important that when recovering a vehicle, the snatch strap should NEVER exceed the maximum turning angle of the front wheels. This can damage the recovery equipment and / or the vehicle in recovery.
As each point is rated at 8,000kg/17,500lb the use of bridle straps is not required. Due to the uneven nature of loads placed on bridle straps it is recommended that they are only used for straight line pulls. It’s important to note that the angle of bridle strap loads should never exceed the maximum turning angle of the front wheels and that the load is central on the bridle strap.
A separate recovery point is being developed for the Toyota Prado 120
DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT:
The recovery point is rated in an angled direction of pull for angles up to the maximum turn angle of the front wheels of the vehicle. To ensure that during an angled recovery there are no inappropriate forces exerted on the shackle, the recovery point has a long slot to allow the recommended bow shackle to be fed through and the strap attached via the pin instead of the bow.
This allows even distribution of the recovery force through the shackle to avoid side loads on the pin. Side loads on the pin invoke forces that tend to open up the shackle, putting unwanted load on its weakest point, the pin threads.
ARB’s engineers have developed the recovery point to fit in conjunction with standard bumpers and ARB bars and to use points within the chassis to achieve the 8,000kg/17,500lb rating. Four mount points are included per recovery point to ensure that there is no torsional twist on angled pulls. A crush tube and nut plate extension are included in the fitting kit to work with existing mount holes within the chassis.
The recovery point has been designed to fit either with the factory front bumper fitted or with an ARB bar fitted. Other manufacturers bars have not been test fitted and fitment is not recommended with other bars.
ARB testing has been conducted with the Fastener Torque Settings as per the supplied fitting instructions.
It is recommended that fitting of the recovery points is done at the same time as bar installation.
