The front recovery system gives two big upgrades: Shackle mounts and a Front receiver. The front receiver allows for a portable winch mount without switching to a full on winch bumper, plus you can mount your winch only when you need it instead of having it mounted constantly. Shackles are much desired over hooks because of their safety and versatility.
The way the At The Helm Recovery System is mounted to the unibody offers much more strength compared to the factory tow hooks weak backing plates or 'M' bolts. It 'sandwiches' the uniframe with 1/4" mounts and 1/4" backing plates and six bolted locations using grade 8 bolts. The main tube is 1/4" 3"x3" and the shackle mounts are 3/4" thick. Uses a standard 2" receiver.
The only modification to the factory plastic bumper is removing the black vent.

Price is $230 plus shipping. Pm or email me at ATHFABRICATION@hotmail.com for a shipping quote.

Approach angle is unaffected and the license plate screws right back into the original position. If you need to use your receiver just take 10 seconds to unscrew your plate.

They can also be built without the receiver so another accessory can be mounted in its place. This customer mounted an led light bar there and also requested to have a flag mount welded on for the dunes.

Yea you need to remove the plastic bumper to install this. Same goes for any front recovery option on the KK. At the moment paypal is my only payment option.

Cool man, Pls. pm me your paypal info. I'm trying to convince the wife to get me one for my bday :)

On a side note:
Would you be making something similar (dual shackles and receiver) for the
back end that will use the stock hitch mounting points?
I think it would be great for guys,(like me) who wants to keep the factory bumpers.
Something like this: sorry for the bad drawing

I'll send that info right over.
You did good with the drawing! That's a good idea and a really nice hitch, but you could always put in a receiver mounted shackle tab into a mass produced hitch..

The front bumper only weighs 35lb? What gauge steel is it made out of?

EDIT: lol just noticed this was the front recovery system and not the bumper

The front recovery bar is 35 lbs, I think. It's really beefy. I'd say it's the same gauge steel as a 2 inch receiver hitch.

EDIT: Just saw your edit! :-)r

Its built pretty overkill. Its 3"x3"x0.250" tube with 1/4" mounts.
The ones without a receiver are closer to 30 lbs.

Yes I did. ArcticLibby ordered it, then changed his mind and ordered the full front bumper. His KK looked sweet with your rhino lined bumper on it! He sold me his spare recovery system for a good price because I helped him install his CB radio in his Jeep.
