trailering a GTA

Can anyone tell me if the frame on a GTA has the pill shaped holes I'm used to on Scouts that allow the below pictured hooks to be inserted for use with chains to cinch a vehicle down with boomers.

Note the ones I use though have a hook, not the loop, but the part I'm asking about is the other end. It's put into the frame and creates a tie down point with a hook that chains can be affixed to to cinching down.

Yes,they definately do in the front and pretty sure about the back too but most guys use a j-hook around axle tube to secure the rear

Re: trailering a GTA

very good.

Yeah What I'm used to doing is hooking the back with chains, pulling forward until they are tight. Putting the car in park and then using boomers on the front to tighten it way down. I know this method works well, only because the guy that taught it to me, flipped a trailer completely over once and the vehicle he had attached to it was still securely fastened to it when he had the whole thing tipped back over by a wrecker. Of course he then had a severely damaged vehicle on the trailer after that along with a really messed up trailer tongue
