Default Rear end recovery spot?

hey guys, so my question is.. if i ever got in a bind and needed to be towed from the rear, where are the recovery points on the rear of the range? if any, or do i need to add something,etc?
i know the front of my truck has the tow points but i would like some for the back in case i ever need it

Have you considered putting a hitch on it?
Then install a tow hook.

frame hitches ftw!!!

also there are oem rear towhooks floating around here that you can buy but imo the hitch is MUCH better and looks better

why not? it have to be REALLY close to the frame for you not to be able to have one. i suggest hidden hitches if clearance is an issue
