Total price I paid was $25.00 per eyelet and $15.00 per D ring.
One issue with the D ring is that its going to bang around on the front bumper when driving. Our mounts mount to more than just the crash bar as is the OEM type. Ours mount to sub frame and the crash bar.

he said he paid $25 for eyelet and $15 for d ring, which was why I asked. i believe yours run around $140?

As for the full kit there. Have you tested this out in terms of pulling a renegade? If i were to spend that much money I would like at least video proof of a renegade being pulled from mud/ditch by these.

edit: I am aware that these would hold up much better than just an eyelet and d ring, but I just want the eyelet/d-ring for flat beds and if i had roof mounted something.

No I don't. I just went to my dealer and he looked it up in the computer and ordered them for me.

No tow hook out there has a video or a test on pulling strength. The OEM does not have a pulling rating also. To my knowledge, the is no strength rating of a tow hook for any car. Testing would destroy the front end of a Renegade. I was asked to make them by many members on here so they could have hooks on both sides.

I think he was just asking if you have just attempted to actually pull a Renegade from one of your hooks, not tested it to failure. I am familiar with actual tow loops used on track cars where the sanctioning body requires you to install one. Those tow eyes look just like yours and are rated as strong enough to pull the vehicle off the track. Ones that are just for appearance have to be labeled as such.

My post mentioned testing your full $300+ kit. I'm not talking about testing to failure. Just to see if your $300+ kit could be used in the event that you were to get stuck.

No we have not tested it because we do not have any Renegade that we would want to destroy. Ours are not just for appearance they are made to pull a car or truck from off road or up a hill, dragging the car we do not know the load that would put on the car and no other tow hooks out there can tell you either. Ours were made because we were asked to make them by the members on here so they could tie down from both sides of the SUV.

The receivers are made to be used with the OEM tow hooks also.

again I am not talking about your over priced tow eye, I am talking about your "tow hawk" package.

You're calling it a "tow hawk" but you haven't actually tested it because you fear that you may ruin your renegade? wow.
