Tow Hooks?

So I just signed up for the Jeep Jamboree and they are saying Tow Hooks are mandatory.

I know this may be a really stupid question but I have a 2011 Unlimited Rubicon and are they referring to the hooks that are installed on my bumpers? or am I missing something here?

I have the factory bumpers still installed.

Thanks and I apologize for this being a stupid question.

- John

That would qualify for the front. I use a d ring in the receiver for the rear. Need to be able to pull on the front or rear for recovery.

The hooks on the front bumper qualify, and there should also be a loop protruding from beneath the drivers side rear bumper. You're good.

If he has a tow package the hook gets deleted. The D ring hitch will accomplish the same thing.

Thanks for this information. I was not sure and wanted to order anything I might need.

Thank you all again!
