Rear Recovery Point Bolts

Post by JTEC »

Guys does anyone know or could possibly measure the length of the bolts that hold the factory recovery point at the rear? I got an upgraded recovery point from Tinus but I want to make sure the bolts are the correct length. Thanks :thumbup:

You need at least 20mm going into the chassis, so (assuming the plate is 12mm thick) anything from 35mm on will work.

There is a lot of space there, so you can use bolts that are considerably too long without issues.

I would go for 40-50mm.

Indeed they are. But I can't remember which thread pitch. I think M10 x 1.25, but I am not sure.
