Front tow hooks
 
I am thinking about buying the mopar front tow hooks. Has anyone installed these? Another question is they are only listed as black right now, but I thought I read somewhere chrome ones were coming?

I installed them, it wasn't too bad. If I remember right, getting the lower trim off the front bumper was much harder than the actual install of the hooks.

BTW - I was at the dealer the other day buying a couple of oil filters, and I almost stroked out when I saw a sign that said I could get the front tow hooks installed for only $475. :eek:

I think I paid about $145 retail for the parts and put them on in an hour? Nice margin there.

here's a link to the install thread

I just installed my own actually 2 days ago and it wasn't that hard at all took me roughly an hour and a half.
Supposedly the chrome hooks will be available on the 2012 Summit but as a late availability, maybe Milous can chime in with an official release date and whether they will be available for individual purchase afterwards.

I didn't see this referenced in all the other threads on this subject.

Scroll down on the left hand side and there is a item for Chrome Tow Hooks and they are listed as "standard on Overland Summit"?

Can any summit owners confirm they have or don't have?

I dont have them on my '12 Summit. If I remember right Milous said it would be late availability.

They were added to the order guide on November 2nd, so any Summit orders placed from that date forward will have them. I don't know if orders placed prior, but not built yet, will automatically get them or not. Will have to verify with build sheets this month.

Do you know if they are order-able as a stand-alone? My dealerships doesn't find them, but that doesn't mean they aren't available. Thanks!

Yikes! I can get the black ones for $145, or the chrome ones for $394!? Phew! I think I will wait a bit and see what Mopar comes up with. Otherwise, I can get the $145 ones chromed for $150 and still be ahead by $100!

Milous--Interesting that the current tow hooks come as a set with a single part number yet the chrome ones have unique part numbers for left and right. I wonder why that is? I can't believe the list price for these..geez! I'll be chroming my own or waiting for MOPAR then as well...that just doesn't make sense.
