I looked thru all the vintage posts in the archives but none of the pictures show up. I was hoping there would still be some around that show some detail of the install. I'm always concerned that a breakdown and careless flatbed operator is going to tear my body.

Thanks,
Pete

I have the Breeze toe hooks on my IRS. They look like they were always there. Sorry, I do not have a picture of them. I will try to get out to the car this week.

I've had the ride twice in 12 years, never had any issues at all with a flat bed ride. As a member of a large local club, I know that not one member has ever had trouble. Tow operators are very considerate of the vehicles they move, it's their lively hood and reputation, and their insurance at risk.
Oh, I only use AAA provided companies.

Here is one option that has worked well for me. I purchased heavy duty U bolts and welded them to the frame. The ones in the front needed bending to get good clearance for the strap hook. It's easier to bend them before welding.

Had the ride twice last year. Both times it was AAA. Two different operators but they both used the same method. They didn't use the tow hooks on the frame. The body gets lower in the front middle for the oil cooler opening and they weren't happy with how close the rigging got to it. They fed short straps though the lower control arms and used that as a hard point. Both times they had planks they used to ease the transition from the road to the deck. The tows were free due to my membership but both guys got a $20 tip for the care they took.

Thanks, that's a good point. May rethink the hooks. Not sure about track requirements though.

Hey Carl,
Where did you get the rear ones? I want a pair for my IRS and Breeze doesnt sell them anymore. I would have to check the bolt size to see if they would work as is.
