Rear Tow Hook

Can't find the rear tow hook on my 2014 Overland as stated on page 558 of the manual. Is there none due to a hitch being on it?

The hitch and hook use the same mounting location so the hook is removed when you have a factory hitch.

Thanks. That's kind of what I was thinking. This new Overland has been a great car, so far.

This is an easy situation to solve, too...in fact, I just bought a recovery setup for use in the hitch receiver and it's living in with the spare tire in case it's ever needed along the way.

That's a nice piece for sure. I'll keep that in mind.

That is exactly what I have. I never imagined I would use it for the first time to tow my WJ. I the the cold weather froze the starter. 😁

Thanks for the post.

Do you have a link to the product webpage?

Is that Mopar or 3rd party?

Pricing?

I looked on Amazon (source of the photo) but couldn't find it.

Looking for 'shackle' is more appropriate than 'hook'.

Check amazon for "mittybilt 29312B Receiver Hitch D-Ring with 3/4-Inch Shackle"

just ordered one from amazon.ca, another brand, D-Ring Universal Shackle, was cheaper in canada.

I have a recovery stretch rope and 2 shackles, just didnt have anywhere to hook to.

Might be useful to help someone that's stuck.

I just don't have front tow hooks. um. Might buy those online, I don't know.
