The only problem with jate rings is location, location, location. When your stuck in 2-3 feet of mud and icy water where is that jate ring? Ya under the mud.

Put your recovery points up high on the bumper, unless you already have a strap fitted to that "jate ring" as heepers do knowing your going to get stuck.

Watched a very dangerous snatch recovery, guy didn't a spare shackle so the rope was fixed to the winch hook. Dam near pulled it off once the wire stopped paying out.

You definitely have to be prepared with jate rings and pre attach the recovery strap or Kerr before attempting the obstacle. Maybe, I like them because I'm old school and used them for many years.
That said, I haven't attached them yet to my D90...It will happen.
During my hiatus from LR a few years ago soft shackles came in. Sceptical at first, I like them. So this dinosaur is evolving.....
