Re: No tow hooks? Front Recovery Soluition help
You are correct. NO TOW HOOKS. From what I have heard, this is due to a European issue, but Jeep have simply removed them from all Export models.
I am unable to comment on the shortened chassis, but suspect that is not correct, as that would have been a major re-engineering of the car.
You can buy hooks from Mopar, but naturally, there will be a cost.
If you have an Overland, then there would also possibly be issues with the Cruise Control sensor, which sits in the lower part of the front grill.
