The towbar on the Shogun is a proper bolt on jobbie, I even went for a heavy duty one that wouldn't look out of place spanning a river.
Its also there to protect my rear end from those that don't realise how good the brakes are
To be honest, apart from when a slip is so bad you can't even stand up on it, I haven't found an occasion where low range and both diff locks haven't got the car, boat and trailer up the slip or even over the beach.
The old 2.8TD I had didn't have the grunt of the 3.2TD, but having a seperate Chassis it did have a recovery eye welded direct to the chassis in a apature in the middle of the rear bumper. I do miss that sometimes. Mind you, my 3.2TD is probably one of the very few that ever selects its diff locks and ends up axle deep in mud, gravel etc. And all on Bridgestone Duelers.
I'm replacing it with a 4.2TD Amazon early next year, then we'll see what a tow car really is
