Re: tow hooks

When I installed my tow hooks on my 2012, the Mopar instructions had me taking off the just the lower black fascia - not the entire bumper (bit of a pain). I found out later taking off the bumper was WAY easier when I did my grille insert from Ablaze Grilles. If you go to just for jeeps dot com, and go to exterior accessories and then pull up one of the Overland grilles, they have installation guides you can take a look at. They are for years 2011-2013, but I don't think there is going to be a huge difference with your '14. You will need to replace the 4 plastic rivets you remove with 6.4mm hole retainers though. The rivets are toast after being pried out.

No, I did not need to remove the bumper, just the lower fascia.
Took me about 15 mins the first time to get to the tow hook location for the install.

Re: tow hooks

i had the bumper off twice already to install the hids and my summit grille,i was just curious,bumper comes off in 5 minuets just scary everytime I do it lol,

I found I set of black ones for 100$,but I like the chrome so I might have them dipped for 50$
