Tow hook

Anyone have suggestions on where to get a quality tow hook for my rear. Full set
I have seen so many at all different prices - but nothing like experience
Thanks

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.

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.
