    Nice job. They definitely look like they will do the job. You may have solved one of the biggest problems with non-TH models, recovery points without replacing the bumper.

    I started working on a second (mk 2) set. Going to be some good revisions in it. I'm looking to see if anyone would want a set with hooks instead of the d rings? I'm going to build at least 1 side to get an idea of how they would look.

    They come out right where the factory ones would.

    I think i have an idea of how I want to test them and see at what point I get a failure.

    Was hoping I could help you on the failure testing, but alas, I was told no by the boss.

    Been meaning to ask: do you have a 2.4L or a 1.4/1.3L? I'm curious how these fit with the intercooler.

    Dang, I'm guessing the intercooler will not fit, but maybe.

    Nice!

    If you're still prototyping, I have a suggestion. Consider instead of permanently-attached hooks, how about some kind of receiver tube holes that can take 1-1/4" or 2" drawbars? That would allow someone to build a temporary winch mount that could be removed when one isn't on the trails.

    I just built a front hitch for my '15 Frontier, one that tucks up inside of the bumper cover and comes out in the front in the lower air intake gap. Been thinking how I could put a temporary winch on my wife's '15 Rene Trailhawk.
