Jeep Cherokee tow hooks for front

Anybody got a cherokee with the tow hooks on it? I bought a set of hooks at Advance, came with the nuts and bolts but where do they go? Ive seen them before under front bumper. I looked and cant see where theyre gonna go. Can I put them on back? Jeepjamboree says you need them. I may want to do that sometime and will help me if I burry it stuck

I say bolt them to your fender, or maybe your hood. No wait, just duct tape them to your factory bumper, that should be sufficient.

since I had my fun w/ you earlier I'll help as you figured out correctly which forum you needed to post in.

On an XJ there is a bracket kit you either need to get from your dad or pick-up used somewhere that ties into the unibody and bumper mounts which the tow hooks attach to.

Hmm, my hooks didnt come with brackets. Guess I thought that would be on. I will see if my dad can get them for me at the dealer. Thanks for the tip, I hope the hooks I bought fit these Jeep brackets?

Check ebay. I know there is a 95 'kit' on there for under $100 now. Has all the factory brackets so you dont rip your bumper off...

The other thread cracks me up, so here is my semi-helpful post...

Thats right, you bought some universal hooks. Your XJ has no where strong enough to mount them. You need the brackets that mount to the "frame", as was said above.

They look like this;



Or you can build your own out of some scrap metal;

Thanks for the help guys. My dad says none in stock but is trying to locate some brackets. Are there any aftermarket ones? jstandle that bumper is cool! Your axles look real wide too!

I'm sure there's more, but I've been out of the XJ world for a few years. Supposedly, the Mopar brackets are the strongest.

You can look on e-bay, likely some listed on there.

The axles are stock width and the front is a POS D30. It may just look wide because it has toothpick sized tubes
