And since this is the 4th Gen forum section here's a link to the recovery points for our 4th Gens from the same vendor.

Recovery Point for Toyota Prado 120 Series / Lexus GX470 / 4th Gen 4Runner | BBG4x4 | Buffalo Bayou Garage
I like the 150 series one much better.

Just not feeling these recovery points that are using the radiator support frame no matter what is said. I feel much better with something that is mounted to the main frame of the truck.

Took about an hour. Uses a 3/4" shackle. As you can see by the pic, I ended up removing my front sway bar as well.

Yes, I have 4th Gen 4Runner (2008). I was about to purchase that 120 series model, but then their customer support recommended me this Prado 150 series model since I am planning to get ARB bumper sometimes next year? From what I understand this model will also fit for 4th Gen 4runner.

But you are right, that BBG-RP120 model is better for 4th Gen 4runner and also cheaper ..

I agree that the ones for the Prado 150 look to be much better as it looks to have 3 mounting points...BUT the tow weight rating is lower for the 150 than it is for the Prado 120 with only 2 mounting points, for the 150 it states and it's also stamped on the pieces..."Rated to a Working Weight Limit (WWL) of 3250Kg per tow point"...but for the 120 it states and also stamped on the pieces..."Rated to a Working Weight Limit (WWL) of 5000 Kg per tow point"....which is 1750Kg more per tow point than the 150 for a total of 3500Kg if using both tow points!!!

Nice set up Kris. Kind of what I want for my 03 4R.
For the 120 series, I see 2 holes for the bolts on the external side of the frame of my 4R but only one in the internal.
Did you had to drill holes in the internal side to insert the bolts and attach nuts?
Can you please give more details of that first plate that protects the radiators?

Thanks K. I am new at this things

Skid plate is RCI

Engine Skid Plate | 03-09 4Runner / GX 470 – RCI Offroad

And
Bumper Filler Plate | 03-09 4Runner / GX 470 – RCI Offroad

Easiest install you will ever do.

These bolt on front recovery points are a 100% bolt on.

No cutting. No Drilling. No welding.

Designed to allow a bow shackle, soft shackle, and even winch hooks to pass through the main eyelet.
Bolting directly to the frame in 4 locations, these recovery points are a much safer option for rigging than the factory tie down loop, which should never be used for towing or recovery of a stuck vehicle.
Allows the factory sway bar to still be used.
A single mount bolt with this recovery point has the sheer strength of just over 20,000 lbs. This recovery point is secured by 4 bolts in total. AKA, super strong and rated for more than most recovery straps and ropes.
Side braces are MIG welded to the main body and the whole assembly is painted safely red for a long lasting and easily identifiable recovery point.
All necessary Grade 8.8 Hardware is included with each set of recovery points.

Here are the instructions for installing
