Need to have George hooked up with a brake module for my new trailer. Has anyone put one in? What brand/model?

you could get regular tow hooks from some where and remove the front bumber I belive and drill two holes one on each side insert some grade 8 bolts. I seen someone on TJU do it. Idk if it would work. Im in the same vote. I just got my rear recovery taken care of. pretty much you either need to attempt this unsure quest or you could get factory hooks and mounts which is your next cheapest then shackle mounts and shackles then the matrix. not a ton of choices. BTW I have heard of the factory tow hooks braking.

Well I want those shackles mounts, I probably should just get what I want to begin with anyway.

Yeah Jaashua, I'd recommend just getting the shackle mounts. Before I bought mine, I was in the same boat as you. I'm extremely glad I bought them.

True but it was off topic! When I have to get my delete/ban stick out and swing it, I make sure everything is cleaned up

Just got mine back from the dealer. Only 1.5 years (probably earlier) into owning the WK and the evap core is bad. Water pump is bad, too. It had about almost $1900 worth of work done. I paid $50. Warranty ftw!

Now they just have to repaint the bumper because someone at the dealer backed it into something...
