Re: No tow hooks? Front Recovery Soluition help

I would put a wager on him
And then stand next to him when they attempt

I would also specify not JA mopar design from best tow bars
Maybe they are now buying the Cheif recovery points

I've always believed the ADR non-compliance reason to be a crock of excrement. Not that I'd expect to be misinformed at my local motor dealership...

Cheers,

Now hang on, the other day on national TV, the federal member for Perth, Alannah MacTeirnan, stated that a motor dealer told her that sales were down. Clearly these dudes are highly respected, at least by the polies

Do a bulk order of hooks through Ben, with payment upon fittment. That'll educate him.

Tools needed for mounting the OEM tow hooks are:
- Hooks ordered on Amazon
- 2 Brackets made from 1cm / 2cm thick steel
- cutting a small part of the front "cross member" (or how do you call that thing?)
- an afternoon of time

Pics see below, if you've got questions feel free to ask.

Cheers from Switzerland

Great idea

Noticed this on the Peter Warren website :


Jeep Grand Cherokee Front Recovery Hook | Buy Online | Peter Warren Group

They look a lot like the Chief part. Bill, do you know that Peter Warren are on selling your part?

Re: No tow hooks? Front Recovery Soluition help

Interesting, it lists a part number: AUSWK14HOOK which is the Jeep Aus hook, but then says you can install both sides....
