Under every vehicle there are holes in the frame so you can hook hooks onto them. They are there so tow trucks can pull people out of things due to stupidity or accidents. all u need to do is find the holes, latch on a clip and pull.

Where? Have you found them? I was looking and looking for a place to tie down my canoe front and back. The salesman at the dealership was no help.
For my own knowledge I need to find these. I tore my achilles tendon and am off my feet for the next month and it is going bug me to no end now that I cannot go and have a look.

In the front bumper there is a small cover, which should be removed.
I think, in the back bumper is similar small cover somewhere...

And in the trunk with your spare-tyre there is a hook which goes into that hole.

But I have not tried to use that (or had to try), so this is only theory

Re: Have Fun Out There :)

You guys have all the fun!

We don't have the tow bolts or the attaching points on our bumpers here in the US. My guess is that it is an European requirement. We also don't get the CRD.

We do have roads around here like that but right now they are mostly ice. The skid plates and the rear hitch have to wait till this summer so until then, I'll stay on the road. After that however, I can use some of the dirt road shortcuts!

I hope we get some vendors interested in making the plates for our buggies since it seems impossible to get them from the local dealers.....

That's actually a state organized special "offroad park" for testing and having fun with ATV-s and 4x4-s. It's an old sandpit, that's in better use now :lol:
