Best tow points for a 2012 Laredo?

We got a LOT of snow here in Central Indiana. Fortunately, we never got my wife's 2012 Grand Cherokee Laredo stuck.

I've looked, but I'm not really sure where the best tow points would be at. I'm just hoping to plan ahead.

Install the tow hooks on the front. If she has a receiver and the tow package get a D ring and use that as the rear tow point.

No hitch or tow package.

Is there any place underneath to attach a strap?

No.

You need the hooks and a rear hitch.

The frame is pre drilled to accept the factory MOPAR hooks. All you have to do is buy the hooks, take the lower facia of using the quick turn screws, once the lower piece is off you can pop the plastic inserts out that are there to hide were the hooks would be if you had them. Search this forum for a how to, there are a couple good ones on here.
