Tow Hook Placement
 
I've got some leftover Pro Comp tow hooks from my old TJ, and I was curious as to where you guys have drilled/mounted them in the rear. If you've got any pics, that would be cool.

So besides the D-ring/hook in the tow hitch, no one has put tow hooks in the rear under the bumper?

Other than fabbing a plate of some sort that attaches to the cradle for the spare tire, I'm not sure there's anywhere under the rear bumper to drill/mount any tow hooks.

Your spare tire is in upside down. The face is supposed to go up so the cable does not damage the face of the wheel.

just an fyi... i installed the mopar hitch on my 07 GC and i had to remove a bar that ran from the rear tow hook to the center of the rear frame. Without that bar the tow hook is just for looks, since the support bar gives the rear frame the strength it needs so it does not bend left or right..
