98 ZJ factory tow hooks and Harbor Freight tow hitch

Spent part of the weekend installing a set of factory tow hooks. These seem pretty stout, so should work well for front recovery points. I also mounted the vehicle tow brackets to the bracket that bolts to the radiator support. This puts my attachment right next to the tow hooks and low enough to be able to attach the tow bar without removing the plastic front cover each time I tow it, absolutely stouter steel than the thin gauge front bumper. Just need to get some safety chains and I also bought some magnetic tow lights as well. Pulled it around the neighborhood and everything seemed to track well. Should be good to go on hunting trip in October.

I have flat towed 10s of thousands of miles behind our motorhomes. Always worked well.


Of all the things Ive lost
The one I miss most is my mind

Its like a fart in a windstorm
It smells good but thats about it
