Radiator support strong enough to tow from?

Recommended Posts

With the front bar and ducting i was thinking of using the bottom of the radiator support that goes between the chassis rails to put a strap around and winch it onto the trailer.

You reckon it is strong enough?

I know you are trying to 'cut' some weight out of the car, now that is going a bit extreme!

Might be a silly q, but why don't you use the tow hooks that come off the front of each chassis rail?

Not as silly as it sounds but the reason is the front bar obscures the location of the std tow hook and would cause the bar to be ripped off.

You can always buy one of these and put a bolt through the bottom of the rad support? (The black section in your photo)
