Rear mounted tow hooks
I have a 95 YJ and I was looking into going to some events this summer but to enter you need tow hooks front and rear, Where do you mount them in the rear. I don't see a good place for them. Thanks for all the help.
1995 YJ (0lll0) Spring over, 33" Swampers.
Get a rear bumper with tow points like this one from Tomken
89' YJ - 4.2 - NV4500 - NP231w/sye - 1" Body Lift - 2 1/2" Rancho Suspension Lift - 31" Firestone MTR - AR Outlaw II - Tomken Bumpers F & R - Warn 8000 front - Warn 6000 rec. mount rear - FlowFit Seats - Tom Woods Rear & Custom 2" front driveshafts
JF Administrator, eh?
What a member of our club did was pull off the bumperettes, and mount a 3ton clevis holder to a 1/4" plate of steel .. and mount back into the holes again .. did it to both sides .. cost was the clevis ($10 each), the 3ton holders ($35 each), and the steel plates .. a bit of time .. and new bolts. Looks good .. and extremely strong!
I drilled holes in my TJ rear bumper, then placed the tow hooks on the bumper. I drilled the holes for the hooks a couple of inches a way from the bolts mounting the bumper to the frame. Make sure the tow hooks are inside of the bolts mounting the bumper to the frame. I was told that was the strongest part of the bumper. It has worked for me numerous times.
