i borrowed a towing eye of a mate and it was bolted through the front subby using the front mount or bolt on one side.. easy as pie , but remember you need a jack to take the weight of the bolt to loosen it

I know its been a while but I have a one man towing device, so i'd go home and get the other car and tow it home all on my own............ Even if I need to catch the bus home...... :mrcool:
