The hooks shown there are not on a GC at all. The openings in the bumper cover do not look like that.

Thanks for the pic. It certainly looks different. The other one is a Mopar part apparently for GC but its from ebay.

The one that's on ebay has the correct part number, but that's not the correct photo that they are showing.

The part number it refers to are the hooks that are fitted to the 2011 Aus GC's, and the US 2011/12 GC's.

Re: No tow hooks? Front Recovery Soluition help

My dealer has informed me im getting mine for free - only after threatening fair trading however. 3-4 Week wait though but better than having to pay..

On the ausjeep forums there is a person just posted saying he called the Jeep Aust hotline (1300 133 079), explained the situation and they agreed to sort it out with the dealer - So anyone that ordered prior to Jan 2012 should get them for free..

If the dealer doesnt come to the party, try the hotline number

Re: No tow hooks? Front Recovery Soluition help

Dealer quoted $350 + installtion but I managed to convince him otherwise and it will be installed "free of charge" under warranty.

Will book car in for installation in the next few weeks and will post pic of installed hook at that time.

Yep, that was me who posted that. In the meantime my dealer called as well and told me they will fit them without charge and if Jeep Aus does not pay they will absorb the costs.
Also got advised hooks area available in Melbourne and I could come in late next week for fitting. But I fully expect that to be updated once they find out that there is a delay getting the hooks.

Spoke to my dealer today. They are going to fit mine free of charge. I ordered in August.
