RE BB with shocks => check
31" MTRs mounted and balanced => check

HMMMMMM--no tow hooks on the front----what next?

Any recommendations--I don't see many other than factory.

How am supposed to go wheelin' with no way to recover the damn thing?

I don't think there is much available other than the factory hooks. Are you looking for something in particular? The factory hooks will work just fine.

Just wondering what is out there--factory set goes for almost $100 for the hooks and the brackets--and that is just for the front.

http://wjjeeps.com/towhooks.htm some good info and part numbers there.

I actually found that site last night after I posted this.
Am I cheap or does $100 seem like a lot for some hooks?

Nosilla--I will try the junk yards next. We have a couple of Uwrenchit ones around here.

BRUSER--how much did you pay for your set--did you get them from dealer?

Did you really have to remove the front fascia to do it?

Yes you have to remove the fascia.... think about it... the mounts are like 5X bigger than the holes on the grill... How are you going to get them on the otherside of the bumper?

However removing the bumper is cake and so installing hooks.

The factory hooks work great and look nice.

I figured--had some stupid thought that you could get to it if you went throuhg the inner fender. At least the kit comes with new plastic thingies to hold the fascia on.
