INTEGRATED SELF RECOVERY SYSTEM INSTALL GUIDE - SCX10 & SCX10 II
SCX10 & SCX10 II INSTALL GUIDE:
Most applications have bumper mounts similar to what is shown. Some may need to be flipped so the flat side is on the bottom. This will be done on the front and rear.
Please note: If you are running aftermarket or different bumper mounts than shown you will either need to switch to this style or modify your current bumper mounts to work with this kit. Some modifications may be required to make this kit work for your vehicle.
Install the pulley into the factory hole in the bumper mount as shown.
Make sure to not over-tighten the screw so that the pulley spins freely.
Now install the included front shoulder screw into the front brace factory hole. You may need to flip the bumper mount over so the flat side is on the bottom. The loop end of the kinetic strap will fit over this.
Make sure the fair lead opening in your bumper is opened up big enough to fit the kinetic strap through. You may need to open it up slightly or if you do not have a bumper with a fair lead you may have to fabricate something different to guide the kinetic line through. In this case we had to also trim some of the bracing behind the fair lead for clearance as well so the line has a straight shot out of the back.
Now you can feed the line through as shown. You want to keep it straight as possible. You will see that there is a space between the transmission and the skid plate that has plenty of room for the line to run through. We find that if you run it to the back then back up to the front and save putting it over the rear pulley to last its easiest.
IF YOU NEED TO REMOVE THE MULTI HOOK TO INSTALL:
You will need to use a lighter to melt the end of the kinetic line and then re-tie the figure 8 knot to secure the multi anchor back onto the end of the line as shown below. You MUST use a figure 8 knot in this location as it is designed to tighten under load.
Here are some bumpers we have found to work well with our Integrated Self Recovery System:
