Anyone have '98 GC TOW HOOKS?

I'm looking to buy a set of front tow hooks for my '98 GC I6 4X4. Saw them on another '98 that was parked in a store lot and couldn't wait for the owner to ask them where they got them and how do they mount. Does anybody know out there who sells them?

Even better - Kevin's Radiator Support: http://www.kevinsoffroad.com/zj/zj_rad_support.html

You can also get hooks from Rusty's, but the radiator support is superior in my opinion.

Or, if you're made of money, you can get a front bumper from several manufacturers. Do a search for front bumper and you'll see what's available.

tow hooks are all over the place. I got mine for $50 from a local guy

install is:

-grill removal
-pop clips that attach bumper (3 on top, 4 on bottom and a few in the fender liner)

Something like that and then you mount the tow hooks on the frame and there are holes you will see to mount up.

The KOR radiator support is solid, I've seen a whole pile of them at the shop and they are built very well. I would definitely go with that over OEM or Rusty's tow hooks.

Junkyard if the hooks and brackets are all you're looking for.

I got the radiator support and the holes didn't line up. Had to do a little adjusting to make it work. Other than that it works great. Haven't had to be pulled out yet.

Hey thanks guys for your responses! Since I'm only look'in for installing the hooks so I can tie down my canoe, I think I'll go with the stock hooks. Guess I'm off to the junk yard!

Be ready for some work - I tried getting some brackets last weekend, and the locktite they used on those bolts was like iron.
