Default Utility Quad.... tow points?

Out of curiousity, what do you guys do for tow points on your quad?

Just for hooking up a recovery strap, etc.

I have a trailer ball on the rear (doesn't have a receiver, just a bolt on ball), and a winch on the front. But wouldn't might something else to hook to, especially on the front.

This is a 2006 Yamaha Kodiak 450.....

I've towed with the racks before on our old fourtrax. Mind you this has been 12" dia trees out of the woods to cut up. I've seen no movement of the racks that make me believe I'm bending anything either.

Take the recovery strap and wrap it low, thru and around the frame.

Sounds fine. Just didn't want to be damaging thing, so figured I'd ask first

since I don't have a winch on my P650 I made a plate with a tow point and bolted it to the winch bracket.

well i have a similar quad to the OP. I got a 05 Kodiak 450 with a Warn 2.5 What i did for the front is went to the local chevy dealer and got a s-10 tow hook for like $40. I drilled out the winch mounting plate and bolted the hook directly to it. I've used it a bunch and have yet to bend it.
