TJ OEM Rear Tow Hook

Trying to put an OEM rear tow hook on my 98 and it doesnt look like it will line up. I need a pic of the underside to show how it mounts. Thanks

That is EXACTLY what I needed. Thank You. The little clip thing is what I was doing wrong.

You might have to drill the hole that goes into the frame. I know I had to on my 98. The access hole was there to put the handle nut in, but the actual hole for the bolt wasn't there.

I have one just like that on my left rear but is it possible to mount one on the right rear too?

It just seams like if I really have to get my self pulled out it'd be nice to have one on either side.

i've also seen ppl mounting the rear tow hook on the side of that frame rail (like this http://www.stu-offroad.com/guards/gas/tj_hooks.htm ). is there any advantage to doing it one way or the other? which is stronger? which is easier to install? thx.

Can anyone tell me how much the tow hook drops below the factory bumper? I have a trailer hitch sitting below the bumper so I'm not sure if I'll have the clearance.
