I see that people also the screw-in tow eyelet for tying off bowlines, but I don't want to mess around with taking those bumper covers on and off and then screwing and unscrewing the eyelet all the time.
Does anyone know if bolt-on tow hooks for the RAV4 exist? I might also consider a discrete looking bull bar.
