Patrick H It is not Rubicon only. Slater451 stated that his SE had one, and my Sport had one.

KaiserJeep Yes it is Rubicon only. Most people remove them and sell them to other Jeepers when they fit a rear bumper with recovery points.

Slater451 That hook is a rubicon only part ???? My 06 SE 4 cyl came with one I had to take it off to put on my trailer hitch

KaiserJeep That factory rear tow hook you show is specific to the TJ Rubicon model. I bought another one from another Forum member and I have one on each side. The mounting holes already exist, you will need to buy new bolts that are 1/2" longer for the passenger side.

Patrick H Get a pair of factory front tow hooks from a GMT400 truck. Err, 88-98 Chevy truck.

Rubicondon53 You'll have to fabricate what you are looking for. and even at that it'll be difficult to impress upon your fabricator that they need to support, at minimum 3 tons without breaking.. If you're just pulling sleds, then a T bar slid into your receiver hitch with hooks on the ends would work. we used to do the same with hooks on the ends of the drawbar of our old John Deere... Those darned tube bumpers make a lot of rather easy things much more difficult than they otherwise are.. Good luck

Are there any better options? Aftermarket solutions? I want two larger, curved C's (not small hooks) both angled toward the center.
Here is the inside the frame option I was referring to. (picture care of Jerry Bransford). One hole is there, need to drill one on each side.

Slater451 How about a trailer hitch with a d-ring attachment

Michigunman You could put one on the passenger side, but you wouldn't flip it. It would be oriented the same as the one on drivers side due to the shape of the frame there. So the hook would curve off to the left on both sides. If that bothers you and want both sides to be symmetrical you'd be better off just buying a couple basic tow hooks and mount them to the inside of the frame on each side.

They only came with the driver side one if equipped. Just bolt one to the passenger side.

That a factory option. Found this from google. http://www.justjeepsoftexas.com/parts_used.php

The passenger one is opposite in that the hook is on the opposite side of the cube

Kota7x I have both the driver/pass tow hooks that came off of my Jeep when I got it. They look like a cube with a "J" on the top (if that is what you are looking for) PM if interested.

I did, and none of those are helpful nor do they answer my question. I have a tubular rear bumper with no mounting ability for a tow hook, nor do I want one on bumper. There is a single factory tow hook (more of a big J) on my driver's side bolted to the frame.

I'm asking: is the passenger side frame set up to accept one just like it? If so, can I get an identical one and flip it over, or would I need a passenger side specific hook?

Additionally, where I can get one of those? I do not see them sold anywhere. Are they called something different?

Rayko Tow Hooks, front or rear?
For the rear, my son went onto a farm tractor supply website and got a pair of awsome hooks for the rear. The stock one on my Rubi was broken.
Haven't put them on yet though...

Where can I get a passenger side tow hook to match the driver's side?

I'm wondering where I can either:

a) get the same part as the driver's side somewhere, flip it over, and bolt it to the passenger side,

b) get a passenger side hook that looks like the driver's side, or

c) get two matching hooks together that match.

Anyone have sources on either of these options?
