The D-rings are only capable if you have AtTheHelms front recovery system.
Yes, dual front KJ hooks will work.

Thanks Gageraid
I thought the OP's question was about a rear hook.

Here's more info on the front recovery system.

I'm always trying to help when I have nothing else better to do on the internet.
Glad you chimed in to point him in the right direction!
Just looking for some good karma.

18mm is the head size, but when sizing a bolt you'll want to go off the shank diameter, thread pitch, length and grade.
Those are M12x1.75x45mm 10.9 grade.

Why put on just the rear tow hook? Go get the tow hitch. You'll have a more balanced tow point (Using two points on the unibody instead of just one) and you will get a bit of back-end protection from the extra steel.

Oh yeahm and you can tow stuff too.
