Looks different. On the WK 2 of the bolts are straight back from each other. They would need to look more like this.

Re: saguaro tow hook compatability??

Haven't bought them. But I know the eBay one's are made from a WK owner off another forum. He started making them shortly after saguaro shut down. They seem to be good quality. I would give them a good coat of Duplicolor bed armor before installing. It'll last longer than the paint thats on them.

Go with option 1 that's $100. You can buy the stainless hardware needed for install from Ace Hardware or Lowes for around 10 bucks. Which would save you some money from the 25 bucks he's asking for option 2. Use that money for the D-rings. The 3/4" D-ring's can be bought off eBay or Amazon. Use some rubber grommets or buy isolators to keep them from moving around.

I don't know who would be interested but I emailed him to ask if he could or would be willing to set up a group buy.

Re: saguaro tow hook compatability??

I said "Would you be willing or able to do a group buy on these? These look like the same ones saguaro or aspen creek used to make. Is this their same design?"

He said "It is similar, however these are FEA tested and those were not. These were also designed to fit the front airdam with out disassembly. I do have another design a more rigid mount that overhangs and fit a much larger shackle. Something that aspen did not have. These are made to order, including a material adder if you go SS. What were you looking for a group size? I can do a price break if enough are ordered."

I'll try to get something posted in the group buy section shortly.
