So I figured it was about time to have an official CJA open run. The date as of right now (unless something extremely important comes up) is Sat  Jan 31.  We will be meeting at the Smitty's in Cochran at 9AM for breakfast and will hopefully be on the road at 10AM.  As I am leading this run I get to set the criteria, it is  as follows:
                                                       - Jeeps only
                                                       -Proper front AND rear towpoints
                                                       -CB and/or FRS radios
                                                       - Proper tow strap with no metal chains or hooks on it.
                                                       - At least all terrain or mud terrain tires with min. 50 % tread.                                       
                                                                (Please leave your bald all season tires at home)
                                                       -Extra clothes and food.
                                                       -Full size spare tire
                                                       -Jeep MUST be in good working condition prior to run

As this is a winter run there is always the potential for body or tire damage. Snow can turn to ice very quickly and it sometimes doesn't take much for a fun wheeling trip to turn on you. However, this trip would be a good experience for anybody interested and meeting the requirements that would like to learn more about the Calgary Jeep Association. This will be a good chance for everybody to learn or practice winter driving skills on some fairly easy trails. All non CJA  members will be required to sign a form for insurance purposes. For safety reasons,it is best if young children wear neck support and are strapped in properly, toddlers are best left at home. We will either be headed to the falls or the lake depending on the weather conditions.
Hope to see ya there,
Lindz

As long as you have a good solid trailer hitch held on by at least 8 or so grade 8 bolts for this kind of run you can use it as a rear tow point in my opinion. That is what I use.  I don't, however, use a hook off the end of it. I just make sure my tow strap will fit inside the reciever and use a good solid hitch pin.

It's the stock set-up for the GC.. used it before & imagine it has all of the above?
Will grab the pin for the hitch tho as suggested...
