I bought the Rusty's front towhook kit for my xj cause it didn't have the factory ones. A few of my friends are questioning their strength compared to the factory brackets. I already installed, but haven't need to use them yet. Does anyone have any info on these?? Are they junk? Should I go to a junkyard and find factory ones?

i had a pair before i got a different bumper and they held up pretty good. and i did a lot of yanking with them in the snow. i yanked a Ford F 350 (and he was in pretty deep snow) and i never noticed a bend in the bracket.

The factory brackets bend, too. I haven't confirmed by putting them side-to-side, but the reports I've seen say that both Rusty's and C4x4's brackets are actually heavier gauge steel than the factory units.
