WK2 Recovery Hook (close up)


One could knee-cap a few roos with this. I expect it would scare the crap out of the regulators in Europe, bless their little hearts. Anyway, it would be a lot easier on pedestrians than a bull-bar.

Hi Adrian,

Unfortunately it looks like the Jeep Nudge Bar mounts in the same mounting holes we use, so it looks like our hooks are not compatible.

On the positive side, it looks like the mounting brackets for the Jeep Nudge Bar are very similar to the Jeep Australia recovery hook. I can't say for sure, but it looks like you could bolt 2 of the Jeep Australia recovery hooks to the inside of your mounting brackets. You would only need the hooks, you already have the mounting hardware required.

On the other hand, after looking at the Jeep Nudge Bar, we've decided if there was enough demand, we might release a Nudge Bar.

Hope that helps.

Cheers,
Bill

Re: No tow hooks? Front Recovery Soluition help

A nudge bar with integrated hooks and bash plate might be a winner. Matt black like the rock sliders.....

Not to take away from Bills fantastic work, but Uneek 4x4 do a nudge bar at with integrated recovery hooks.

Yes but the hooks are not rated, at least, not yet. I asked them.

Bill.

Yes they are similar to the CJD Oz design brackets, but are extended to accommodate the nudge bar.

Happy to offer my JGC as a test pig to see if your hook/eyes will "fit" the brackets as the max loading for both items is the same.

Needless to say I will not be putting 4500 kgs on them just to find out.

I say this as the original Jeep hooks (no longer available in Oz) also use the same 90 degree change to orientation with the nudge bar brackets fitted.

Please advise if this may be possible.

Regards

Adrian
