Front Tow hooks for 2017 GC Laredo -help!!!!

Hello from Detroit everyone! My name is Adam I am new to Jeep and a proud owner of 2017 JGC. It's a Laredo with wheel and radio package, nothing fancy but I really like it. I went to get one in black but ended up with white, I thought the black and white contrast looked beautiful. I am very new to Jeep so plz pardon my noobness.

I just had a couple of questions about this car I hope you guys can guide me in the right direction.

I have done quite a bit of research on installing front hooks on WK2 but I wanted to make sure if the same front tow kit #82212095 works for 2017 models?

And is there a way to take off these tow covers without taking off the bumper or the lower fascia? Or do they have to be cut out on this particular model?

Thanks in advance !

You'll need to remove the lower fascia to get access to install the tow hooks, but it's not difficult. Instructions come with the tow hook kit, although the instructions aren't the best. I think there was a post on here some time ago with photos of the install. If your 2017 is like my 2015 Limited, the covers just pop out of the fascia.

Welcome to the forum! You can learn a lot by hanging around here.

Hey Thank you ! Yes that's what I wanted to check if the cover pop off on 2017 models, because it looks like it's attached to the lower fascia and needs to be cut out.

Btw do they pop outwards or inwards ? And can I take them off without removing the fascia ?

If you haven't seen it, you may want to watch the video in post 30 of this thread:

http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f309/...17/index2.html

The MOPAR performance catalog says part number 82212095 fits 2011 to 2017.

The Summit is the only model that needs cutting.

Thanks for the link, seems like a fairly simple install except pulling the fascia off the bumper, that part looks tricky, im afraid to break the connectors.

Any recommended seller/website with a good price for the tow Hook kit?

Seems that a couple of the forum sponsors usually provide the best prices and service, especially if the are offering a forum deal. moparonlineparts.com and JeepsAreUs.com are two of them. These are probably heavy, so your local dealer may have near the same price when shipping charges are considered. They list for ~$220 but there have been some 15% off coupons floating around.

Thanks! I'll check with my local dealer.

Is there a regional section on this forum? I'd like to find someone local in Metro Detroit area who can help me with the install, I rather pay a fellow forum member if possible.

Thanks Mod ColdCase, you've been v helpful !! Ordered the kit from Amazon, $200 shipped. None of the local dealers had it in stock, it was on back order everywhere.

if you need help with the lower fascia, check out my video. I cover most of the install.

Did you get them installed yet? Post a pic when you're done as I'm interested to see how it came out.

I know you already bought them, but Rocky Road Outfitters has tow hooks as well. I was looking at purchasing some of those.

Sorry for the delay, I was finally able to get the hooks installed with the help of a fellow forum member( Troy) such a great guy, everything went pretty smooth until we found out that the tow hook covers do not pop off in 2017 model, we had to cut the holes in the lower fascia for the hooks.

Thanks for all the help guys, its little over a month and I am loving it. Here is the latest picture:
