recovery question

Hey friends: Iíve got a 2013 stock JKU. Itís got a hook on the back, driverís side, which attaches to the frame (see pic). I figure this is a recovery point that I can attach a strap to. Does anyone know if thatís right? Reason I ask is because I can't understand why they put it on the driverís side, instead of in the center. Guess they wanted to leave room for a trailer hitch (which I don't have). But anyways: Is it safe/effective for me to give another car a recovery ďpopĒ if Iím pulling from only the left side like that? Has anyone used it that way? Doesnít seem like it would work if itís not in the centerÖ..? Thanks for helping, sorry for the nube question.

Yup, it works as a tow, or recovery point. It also doesn't slip off as easy as you think.

Look closely and you'll notice that the frame is there , and just a tad weaker cross-member in the center . And no it's not a noob or dumb question , it's actually a good question . JKO is a great place to ask and learn . By the way Welcome to JKO.
