Trail Hawk in Australia
 
Apparently the Trail Hawk is now available in Oz. 160 are available.

From Talking Jeep :

Talking Jeep Oz

And it comes with Flame Red Tow Hooks!

It would be interesting to compare the front chassis of a Trailhawk to a WK2 without the towhooks.

Yes, not my cup of tea....

But the point for us in Oz is that this style of tow hook was removed from our GC's on the basis of pedestrian safety and we have had a hell of a time sorting out a replacement hook.

And I wonder where Chrysler Australia has had these Trail Hawks hidden if they are only now being released - presumably they have held them back to maintain some sales interest pending the MY14 arriving.

Milous said only US and Canada got trailhawks. Interesting...

Trailhawk tow/recovery hooks tested to twice the vehicle's Gross Vehicle Weight

I reckon that's great value for the money.

Perfectly suit those that want to tow an off-road camper. And I like the look of it too.

That was the original plan. Odd that they would go to all the trouble of making RHD versions for only 160 builds... and to release them so late.

Milous, didn't get recovery hooks on standard 2012 WK2 the reason provided was pedestrian safety. So home come the trailhawks being imported dont have the same restrictions?

Apart from being terribly expensive....I am led to believe one can't install two of these because the right hand side will only take in a screw in tow hook,

Are you able to enlighten us oh wise one.

There is someone on ausjeepoffroad who is hopefully going to take some pictures on the weekend of their new Trailhawk - so all will be revealed in a few days!!!!

I spotted a trailhawk at heartland Chullora today, so called in to have a look. Guess what - two great big red recovery hooks hanging off the front. I'll post some photos later.

I spoke to the parts manager, John, and and he is going to find out if they can be fitted to MY12.

There was no recover point on the rear.

Also spoke to the sales person briefly. Said she was new and just learning. Asked me if you can take the gc off road! No idea. I mentioned this to John who said there is no communication from Chrysler - he didn't know anything about the trailhawk till it turned up on the transporter.
