Google indexing can take months sometimes. Weird about the 5 days though.

Re: No tow hooks? Front Recovery Soluition help

My dealer told me that part number was wrong, but couldn't give me the right one.

Sounds good. Any idea how they are mounted? I hope they don't need welding.

Hey GMWK2, where did you get the photo? no chance it's one of the optional US parts that are no good to us is there?

Re: No tow hooks? Front Recovery Soluition help

The USA ones go into the OEM holes, that one in the picture looks legit as it has the heavy duty bracket.
Hopefully Jeep do the right thing and do a recall to fit them for everyone, as many people may not know about this issue until they look for the place to attache the snatch strap.
Jeep also cannot use the excuse about people being advised after the 1/1/12, as not having recovery points would make a 4x4 vehicle unfit for its intended purpose.

I think it's legit too. The part number looks to be #HCOHM which is quite different to the US hook number. It may be an interim number that doesn't mean much. The number quoted by phillw #8220WKRH looks more authentic. This is close to the new nudge bar number #8220MKNB.

Anyone know a good chrome plating shop? ;-)
