    * WARNING *

    DO NOT EXCEED THE WORKING LOAD LIMIT OF THIS PRODUCT AT ANY TIME. The Working Load Limit of this product is significantly less for non-straight line pull forces.

    * CAUTION *

    Every recovery situation has the potential for personal injury. In order to minimise that risk, it is important to familiarise yourself with the proper operation of your recovery equipment before using it, and be constantly safety oriented.
  • High Strength
    Engineer rated to 4,500kg WLL (1.5 times GVM of WK2). 1.5 times GVM is considered the engineering minimum standard for recovery hooks. A 3,000kg GVM vehicle stuck in deep mud/sand needs a high-strength recovery hook to safely withstand the forces encountered during recovery. Our engineer rating jumps to 8,000kg when our recovery hooks are used as a pair with a bridle strap.

    Winch Compatibility
    If you're installing a winch (or plan to be recovered by one) you'll want a recovery hook that is up to the task. For a 10,000lb winch you'll want a recovery hook with a minimum WLL of 4,500kg.

    Safety
    In addition to the engineer rated design, our recovery hooks also features a 5mm radius on all exposed edges. This ensures safe use with soft shackle recovery gear, while also meeting the required government safety standards (Australian Design Rules as well as various European Pedestrian Safety Standards). Finally, while our recovery hook protrudes through the opening in the lower fascia for easy attachment of recovery gear, it doesn't extend beyond the front most part of the bumper.

    Ease Of Use
    The open ended recovery hook makes it quick and easy to attach recovery gear (especially important when you need to be recovered quickly). The recovery hook protrudes far enough beyond the lower fascia to ensure side recoveries are easily possible.

    Compatibility
    Engineered to be 100% compatible with all of our products, as well as all of your Jeep's safety systems. Designed so they can be easily installed on either side of the vehicle (Drivers or Passengers).

    Easy To Install
    We provide easy-to-follow step-by-step instructions. If you're half-way decent with a wrench you can easily install this yourself. We've even designed the mounting brackets so they're reversible, to make things as easy as possible.

    Industry Leading Corrosion Protection
    We utilise E-Coat (Electrophoretic Coating) to provide the very highest corrosion protection available for steel automotive parts. Deposited from a water-based solution using a high voltage DC charge, the process coats all wet surfaces with an extremely tough and highly corrosion resistant finish that is unlike any other process. On top of that industry-leading electrophoretic coating we apply 80µm of extremely durable powder coat (advanced polyester thermosetting powder). Finally, whenever possible we build our products with highly corrosion resistant materials and fasteners (stainless steel, aluminium alloys, etc.) to provide enduring protection against corrosion when a coating is scratched or damaged off-road.

    Colour
    Available in several colours, so you can choose which one looks best on your machine.

    Attention To Detail
    Machined edges, smooth surfaces and precision alignment.

    Real World Testing
    There aren’t many off-road companies who own a WK2 as their daily driver, or regularly take it all over Australia in search of off-road adventures. In our opinion, that extra testing and passionate attention to performance leads to superior products.

    Top Quality Finishing Touches
    We include all the details that matter. High tensile zinc plated bolts for maximum strength and corrosion resistance. Wedge-Lock washers to create bolted joints that are extremely resistant to loosening. Anti-Seize for bolted joints that are resistant to seizing. A Chief Products Shop Rag for all the dirty jobs around the garage. All packaged with extreme care to arrive safely and looking great.
  • Bolts into existing mounting points in the frame, no drilling or cutting needed. Some models require cutting holes for access to the hooks, (see notes below).

    Textured Black Tow Hook Finish Flakes Off

    Instructions were spot on, only thing I would add to them would be to drop the front belly pan so you can have full unobstructed access to properly torque the driver side bolts. The materials themselves used for the hooks, spacers, and hardware are very heavy duty and robust. Definitely a major upgrade over the Rough Country version. Only complaints would be that the textured black finish cracks/peels during installation revealing a glossy black finish and the tow hooks stick out a little too far should probably go back about a half an inch to blend in with the vehicle more. However, I realize they stick out that far so you can add a nudge bar in the future.

    Look Great and Sturdy

    I bought a pair of red for my wife’s 2020 Limited nearly two years ago and finally got put on my honey-do-list. I am pleasantly surprised with how easy they were to install and how nice they look. A big brand off-road shop quoted me $700 for 4 hours of labor to install them and I was floored. I just couldn’t see why it would take so long and figured the worst thing that could happen is I mess up a piece of plastic. In my driveway, at night, with a couple of 16mm wrenches and I got them installed in less than two hours (fascia cut out time w/ the wrong tool included). And that’s with my old fat butt having to get crawl around on the ground blindly feeling for bolt holes. If I had a proper shop and was 30yrs younger, I could’ve easily done it in 30-45 minutes.

    The only problem I ran into is there is absolutely nothing for the “strengthening bolt” on the very front hole to bolt up to. I don’t know if it’s to do with my specific model, but there is just empty space above that hole. I figure that they’re sturdy enough to get us out of a jam and mostly for looks anyway. Hell, that Jeep barely leaves the pavement in the first place.

    Overall, they’re pretty great! Definitely worth the price.

    Easier to Install Than Expected on 2016 WK2 Overland High Altitude!

    Wow, these are way more hefty than I anticipated! I have a **2016 WK2 Overland High Altitude** and offroad occasionally. Fortunately have never needed to be pulled out, but feared the day when I might have needed a pull from the front with no recovery hooks.

    I purchased a single hook to install on the passenger side. Much to my surprise the 2016 High Altitude has the plastic access cover on the passenger side, but nothing exists behind it in the factory location. This meant none of the first few installation steps applied to my vehicle AND I didn't have to cut anything because it fit perfectly within the factory access cover void after it is removed!!! I was also able to install without having to remove the lower fascia, I simply worked the pieces and bolts into place while wiggling around underneath the front end. Installation completed in about 30 minutes. No issues getting soft shackles onto the hook.

    Could not be happier with the end result, awesome quality product. Now trying to decide if I need to add one on the driver's side to even things out (which would require cutting because there is no access cover on that side). Happy customer! :)

    Beastly!

    These hooks are well worth the price. Way sturdier than the OEM versions, which look like toys in comparison. I've also hooked them up to a winch and used them to pull without issue. They look great integrated with the Nudge Bar.

    Fantastic option

    A fantastic option that provides not only a great look to your vehicle but has some practical value. Especially in the Canadian winter and on the off-road adventure. The quality of the hooks is superb and it is a very strong and reliable material that will serve your jeep or a lifetime. Thank you, guys! I am one happy buyer. I will also look closely now for your other Jeep W2K products.
