Re: No tow hooks? Front Recovery Soluition help

Would be great if they thought outside the box and made the nudge bar compatible with other features like ACC and parking sensors. If the ECB bullbar can accommodate the sensors, why not the genuine one?

The ECB bar isnt compatible with ACC unfortunately, but it allows for the parking sensors by relocating them into the bullbar. The problem with the nudgebar is it sits in front of the sensors so it will always be setting them off. The only way to get around that is with a nudgebar the sensors wont see, which would not be easy.

Re: No tow hooks? Front Recovery Soluition help

Are these new tow hooks available now at dealers (in Australia)?

Anyone have photos of them fitted??

Re: No tow hooks? Front Recovery Soluition help

I have not heard of any reports that dealers have them as yet. Best to ask your local dealer for details. Especially whether they are gong to be free or not.

Re: No tow hooks? Front Recovery Soluition help

They're in or nearly in Aus and dealers will start receiving them over the next few weeks. Cost will depend on what you and your dealer have agreed on or discussed as not all new LGC owners are looking for them to be installed. There are many new WK2 owners in the caravan forums and city folk who have no expectation or desire to have these installed.

Re: No tow hooks? Front Recovery Soluition help

Northern Motor Group in Victoria have responded to an email query of mine, saying that they will have them up on their ebay store as soon as they are available.

Re: No tow hooks? Front Recovery Soluition help

I bet that price does not include fitting. Expect another $400 for fitting.

I also wonder if they need to affix a modified vehicle compliance plate as it is technically being modified outside the ADR's that it was originally complied with.
It will be interesting to see who Jeep give them to and who they charge. I expect it will be the vocal minority who will get them free and the rest will need to bend over.

Re: No tow hooks? Front Recovery Soluition help

My dealer has assured me I'm getting it for free, I think mainly because I explained when buying the car what I would be buying it for (ie. beach work) and asked the question specifically about recovery and was told at the time the factory provided eye would be sufficient.

Re: No tow hooks? Front Recovery Soluition help

If my dealer does not supply the hook, free, I will cry, kick up a stink, and yell till my tiny lungs burst.
I was going to say "If my dealer is reading this...." but then realised Dealers Can't read.

Re: No tow hooks? Front Recovery Soluition help

Some installed photos up on ausjeepoffroad. It looks a hell of a lot more solid than the 2011 hooks.
