Do any of you guy's with 2016+ Grizzly's use the front bumper to tie your strap to when stuck and getting tugged by another machine?
Is it a safe and strong enough mounting point for a strap or do you just just use the winch hook?

Winch hook would be best, front bumper is fairly thin material, not the best choice to hook to.

Anchor points need to be bullet proof, the fenders like cars/trucks are never suitable and likely the front bars on an ATV are not optimum. . Find a hard point on the frame to prevent damage.

Never use the front bumper like that. It just isn't strong enough.

Some members have modified the winch mounting plate with rings or a welder loop for pulling after damaging the gears in the winch.

If it is just going to be a light pull, I don't think it would be a problem, but if you estimate it to be something that is going to require several hundred pounds of pulling torque use your winch.
