Rear Tow Point Help

Need to install a rear tow point/hook on my '98 Cherokee. I know the Up Country Suspension Group added a rear Tow point to the Cherokee, but have never seen one.

Is there a way to add a rear tow point/hook to a Cherokee, or do I have to add a replacement bumper or a tow hitch to get one? Would appreciate any help anybody can provide, and pics would help as well. Need to get a rear tow point on the vehicle before the end of the month (already have front tow hooks/mounts on order).

Theres no justifying installing a tow hook when you can install a rear hitch that ties the frame rails together, gives you a tow point, and allows you to tow a 5,000# trailer (depending on your engine/transmission). I paid about $100 for a class 3 hitch and installed it in about 20 minutes.

another vote for the hitch.

adds strength to the frame, lets you tow, much stronger then a side mounted hook, and costs about the same as the rear hook kit

go with the rear hitch, it will be the strongest point that you can find. its the best way for recovery.

you can get one of thise hitches that hide away if your worried about the hitch getting in the way.
