    just a quick question (i hope) got a 300tdi ES '94 with an after market winch bumper i fitted which has towing eyes on it. it didnt come with any adaptor pate on it for more bolts, just fitted onto the standard ones. anyway im going to silverdale this sunday and wanted to know whether the original bolts (all in good condition) would be able to cope if i got stuck... or do i definatly need to go out and get some higher rated bolts? if so what would you recommend?
    cheers, chris

    So long as they are 8.8 you should be fine
    You could always buy some jate rings to fix to the chassis pretty cheap
