    so my truck came minus the rear recovery loops and I bought a set used a while back. They came with spacer blocks. I am ready to mount the loops now but I can't find the spacer blocks. Do I need them if I am mounting under a hitch? I am not completely clear on what they do.

    The ones on mine don't have spacers on the rear, the fronts do to clear the little tabs on the ARB bumper.

    I never had spacer blocks on the loops with the hitch. However, with the hitch one will mount forward and the other backwards.
