Tow Hooks and hitch

Hey all- After all the snow we've had here in Delaware this year thus far, I am giving serious thought to tow hooks. Does Mopar offer these as a dealer installed part? If so, any idea on cost? If they don't is there anywhere I could have these installed? Second- what is the maximum tow rating on an FD1 5-speed Pat? Does the dealer do installs of hitches? Thanks.

The factory is the only option at this time for fron or rear tow hooks. They are around $300 (front) and can be ordered.

In order for the dealer to install these they will have to make the two holes in the bumper cover and I'm sure labor costs will be high.

I did my own and it's not that hard to do them if you are reasonably good with tools and are mechanically inclined. One of the guys that post here (polished heckler) has the measurments on where the holes are located in the front cover. You may do a search and find the link here.

Dealers will install hitches and 1000 Lbs tow rating on the FDI.
