...and don't see them listed in there.
I'd expect a fairly simple installation. Looking at the non-hook-equipped models, the sides of the lower grill area appear to basically be knockout panels. I'd also expect the holes in the frame to be pre-drilled/stamped; I can't imagine they'd take the time to manually punch those holes on ONLY those with the off road packages- way too easy to stamp them in as they form the panel to begin with.
Yeah, the holes on my KJ were already there, too. The installation was fairly straightforward although I think both the instructions and also people that had already installed them themselves recommended removing the front bumper for easier access to everything. I managed to install them without removing the bumper, but it was then a very tight fit for my fingers and tools which made it a pretty slow job. I vaguely having a heck of a time getting the M bolts that came with hooks held in place until I could screw them tight.
The KJ's hooks have proved useful several times in the mud, both for pulling and being pulled. They also worked nice for pulling out bushes and small tree stumps
So I'd like to have them on the WK2, also.
I think I can get by without skid plates, so don't really want to get the whole OR package. I may just opt to buy then ask the dealer to throw the tow hooks on as part of the dealer prep.
