Re: Possible new recovery point on WK?

good thread, I had planned to add rear hooks as well but was unsure where to mount them.

Re: Possible new recovery point on WK?

I actually did something a little different. I mounted mine in the exact same location, using the exact same initial hole but I turned the hook towards the fenders...that way the slider holds it on hook without it popping off.

Re: Possible new recovery point on WK?

Nice work Matt that looks like from the angle you have it on there. The slider will still serve it's purpose, you can reach it, and it's not as ugly as the factory one I hate.

I wanted to also give thanks to the member Madanio24 (Matt) who posted the pics of the Reese tow hook....I mistakenly gave all the credit to the OP but forgot to mention him...so thanks guys for a good idea. If I get a chance I'll post a pic of what I did in case someone else wants use this idea but wants a slight alternative.
