Re: No tow hooks? Front Recovery Soluition help

You also can clear any codes, which is the main reason why I got it.

Heres the lookup table of codes..

So if the issue doesn't reappear straight away you will be able to drive the car.

Like the look of this front bar, maybe a front recovery solution.



Just realized its a compass....

I think that's the new Compass compact? Neat looking bar for sure though

Re: No tow hooks? Front Recovery Soluition help

I just posted this on another forum. I'm not an engineer, so just a suggestion and I'll try and describe this as best as possible.
Would it be possible for someone to manufacture a front tow hitch (similar to a rear tow bar with the square mouth mount) that would bolt to the chasis on the front left and right side. In effect a tow bar for the front.
Potentially a nudge bar and skid plates could be incorporated as an add on.
The square mouth mount (what I know as a Hayman Reese hitch could then be used with a tow bar recovery hitch insert or even a tow hitch mounted winch.

Re: No tow hooks? Front Recovery Soluition help

Just received an update from my fantastic dealer that a solution for the WK2 Recovery Hooks has been built and currently awaiting ADR approval. Suggest you contact your dealer for the update.

Interesting any idea if the cost will be absorbed.

Re: No tow hooks? Front Recovery Soluition help

Well, if true that's good for all you 2012'ers. You'd think this would have been sorted long before now.

Re: No tow hooks? Front Recovery Soluition help

This is from talking Jeep OZ..

"Jeep Australia have informed dealers that they should have a solution for the 2012 Grand Cherokee recovery hook issue. They will be introducing a revised Nudge Bar incorporating a recovery hook and also a stand alone recovery hook. These are apparently being tested for ADR now and once approved should be available in mid April."

Re: No tow hooks? Front Recovery Soluition help

Hmm.. sounds like an extra add on we will have to pay for.
If the system costs the same as a pair of front hooks for the 2011, i guess that will be ok because you would have had to shell out for that anyway. Any more expensive and there is a problem.

Re: No tow hooks? Front Recovery Soluition help

Enforcer - Point about free of charge etc. If you bought a 2011 you would still need to buy the front tow hooks separately (as far as i know), they where not free of charge. So jeep should make it so you can use tow hooks free, but the actual hooks will cost.

Re: No tow hooks? Front Recovery Soluition help

Didn't all Australian MY11's come with Tow hooks as standard?
