Re: 2012 Model Overland Front Recovery hooks

I dont know about the overland but the laradeo and the limited do not have them, i have seen mine, it is a 2012 and their gone. It might cost $900 to put them on, so the car is the same price but missing some parts..

Re: 2012 Model Overland Front Recovery hooks

I went in to look at a 2012 and the screw in pin doesn't all that strong - i'm not an expert but think it would be sufficient for towing but i doubt it would be any good for full on sand, mud, snow recovery.

On the upside ECB have confirmed the big tube bullbar has rated recovery points welded to steel mounts.

Re: 2012 Model Overland Front Recovery hooks

we picked up our 2012 Overland on the weekend and can confirm NO front recovery hooks. We haven't located the "screw" in eyebolts either.....

Did notice that there is a rear recovery hook under the rear of the vehicle though.

It is a 25cm long galvanized eyebolt that is in the styrofoam spare tyre insert. I believe you flip off a cover on the driver's side where the tow hook would have been and it screws into there.

Without all the light weight materials such as styrofoam and polycarbonate headlight covers, plastic skid plates etc, Imagine how much the beast would weigh?

Re: 2012 Model Overland Front Recovery hooks

Towing hooks for my Limited are in with the spare tyre tools, and are referred to in the manual as to "rescue a vehicle stranded off road" - no reference where to fit them.

Re: 2012 Model Overland Front Recovery hooks

That is shitty that they cut that needed piece of gear. While I hope to never need one, it is nice to have it. Being forced to pay $'000's for it stinks.
I would write a email to Chrysler au and see if they might do something. Maybe contact them through the Facebook page.

Mmmmm, I have tried the facebook thing with absolutely no response, hence I have tried Milous at least Jeep USA seem to be customer / brand focussed.

Re: 2012 Model Overland Front Recovery hooks

My understanding is that you only get the hooks if you have the off-road adventure pack II. I'm keeping my fingers crossed on that one.

Re: 2012 Model Overland Front Recovery hooks

I hope you're right BobT. I'll be mightily disappointed if my off-road adventure doesn't include recovery hooks.

Re: 2012 Model Overland Front Recovery hooks

I had a look at an overland yesterday at a dealer and it had all the options and it didn't have tow hooks installed sorry to say

Re: 2012 Model Overland Front Recovery hooks

Spoke to my dealer today re the Front Recovery hooks , Explained I test drove a Overland with tow hooks and that what I expect to recieve.
Why would you buy a 4x4 if you cant recover it when you get bogged
I suggested he find some from a older 2011 model, As my overland isnt due until late Dec, we will have to wait and see.
