You putting them on a YJ or TJ? There should be holes for it already, I'd think.....

They are going on my TJ. I looked on the drivers side of the frame and there are 3 holes that I can see, but none match up to the Hook. I was thinking there might be a few hole on the underside that I'm just not seeing?

Do you have a stock bumper? I believe that the bolts that connect the bumper to the frame can also be used for the tow hooks.

I take it back...Just realized that you are not going with stock hooks. My bad...

Yeah. I was thinking of returning it and getting the stock Rubicon hooks...

Could be wrong but the bolt pattern looks as if it would mount on top of rear bumper? and look similar to the ones that are stock on the front?

No the hook is a lot larger than it appears in the pic. The actual hook is about the size of a baseball

Don't think so, I'm not even sure if that's a good idea unless those bolt holes are tied into the frame somehow

If there are no holes, per instructions mentioned by Jerry Bransford recently on mounting a tow hook to the rear...drill holes in ONE side of the frame rail (outside), there should be a spot where the bottom is cut out so you can put the nuts INSIDE the frame rail...drill the holes above that point. Put the bolts through the outside and the nuts on the inside and torque em down tight. If you go all the way through the frame, the hook will keep coming loose and require tightening as you keep crushing your frame rail.

Edit: Here you go...scroll down to post #8.

here is a good write up on installation. the hook that he mounted is a different style, but same principle when installing it. make sure you don't drill through both sides of the frame when mounting the hook though.
