Rear Tow Point

3 of 5
A rear tow point or shackle point like the one on this Smittybilt rear bumper is always a great accessory to have. If you’re tugging out another truck from the rear (or another truck is pulling you backwards), you should never hook up to the winch cable and always to a shackle (or tow) point. Winch cables are for winching, and tow points are for tugging.
