Re: No tow hooks? Front Recovery Soluition help

I thought perhaps they just used the wrong image, but it is actually the Aus Jeep hook. But installing both sides, the part number must be wrong.


Interestingly that pic looks like Bill's car....

Re: No tow hooks? Front Recovery Soluition help

Maybe the image is reversed? But I still think it looks like bills part.

Bill is probably deep in conference with his corporate lawyers (wife?) right now.

They look a lot like the Chief part. Bill, do you know that Peter Warren are on selling your part?
Hmmmm... Very strange! That is definitely one of our photos, but I've never spoken with the guys over at Peter Warren.

My guess is they didn't have a photo for the website, so someone did a Google search to find one.

Thanks for the heads up! I'll send them an email and see what they say.

Cheers,
Bill

Re: No tow hooks? Front Recovery Soluition help

Maybe it fell off the back of a truck, and they decided to sell it?

Was at Peter Warren today and asked about the tow hooks. They were adamant that the hooks were genuine Jeep hooks and not Chief ones or aftermarket.

At $600 each they've got to be joking.

Re: No tow hooks? Front Recovery Soluition help

No response from my email so I gave Peter Warren a call today to follow up. Sounds like it was just a mix up with the photo. They told me they're going to replace it.

Thanks for the heads up!

Cheers,
Bill

Re: No tow hooks? Front Recovery Soluition help

Yes, a "mix up" I'm sure.

Re: No tow hooks? Front Recovery Soluition help

Added the Mopar hook on the weekend. Never was able to get the lower bumper off so with careful keyhole surgery and a good selection of tools was able to fit it. $280 from a Jeep dealer in Brisbane.

Man that would have been a PITA job working through the knock-out. Respect... for your patience!
