Well I could tell you that the first bump you hit that is bad and at speed is going to smash that hood. Cause its going to flip back and there is nothing to stop it. Unless you can secure it vertical and to something like @Artisan did on his 916.Thanks for the support Wes.
Allow me to interject here for your safety and others bro.
That is an 80,000 lb rated towbar if I remember right. It is a BEAST!
I can not safely lower it nor raise it alone and I am a pretty big boy.
It is really heavy. Your strap WILL FAIL! Plus it will bounce and you
do not need those problems.
I use no less than TWO independant chains to support mine in the
stowed posistion and it is solid in said. ALSO, I think I see you are
missing 50% of the required pins! That unit came new w/ SEVEN
pins of which you can see all of them on my unit.
If you look at the plate I made to chain to you see a pulley. Some day when
I am really bored I have a winch to raise and lower that bad boy so I can
self recover w/ my 5 ton alone if necessary.
Sure that looks cool but bro... It's not safe my man.
Take that bad boy to a local fab shop and have them weld up a proper
winch bumper w/ tow eyes all set up to stow that towbar vertical perhaps.
I took some pics of mine for you...
