@Brewc...the eye bolt sold under the name "tow hook" will screw in there, the cover/grill is removable. The Trailhawk red hook will not fit on the passenger side, only the eye bolt.

We now have the new Tow Hawk kit for front right and left tow hooks now on the non trail hawks. They bolt on to the frame AND sub frame and are made of 3/8 steel that will accept the stock OEM tow hook and our tow hooks from ZL1 Addons. You can use them with the front fake grills off, or you can use them with a hole in the fake grill. Our tow hooks will screw out of the Tow Hawk receivers and you can reinstall fake grills also. YOU DO NOT NEED TO REMOVE FRONT FASCIA!!! to install, they will come with all mounting hardware. Pics here are raw and not painted black to see how they mount.
I went online and it's selling 1 front and 1 rear tow hook now. Not 2 in the front. Also it didn't seem to have included the brackets for mounting on to the frame.
Instead, there are 2 different, heavy duty pins that grabs the bumper. So are those tow hooks talked about in this thread no longer produced ?
I can't trust the bumper attached tow hooks. Not because of ZL1 products, but mainly due to the fact that it's just an aluminum bumper with who-knows-what welding. If we pull the bumper out, Jeep's just gonna say the bumper was not designed for that purpose.

Can anyone reintroduce this topic please for NON TH owners as indicated by the OP? Thanks.
What I can see as a problem, and I apologize if it has been mentioned in this tread already, because I didn't read it all.

But, items 2, 3, 5, 6 (in the OP's picture) are designed to bolt to the front bumper on the Trailhawk. The bumper on the Trailhawk is made of steel. Items 7 and 8 are the Red Hooks and mount through the items listed above. And you still need the 2 nuts that are not pictured for the end of the Red Hooks.

I don't know if the Trailhawk bumper is the same size (because of the steel bumper). I don't know if it mounts in the same location because the Trailhawk has a different bumper cover to allow for a better approach angle.

To accommodate the better approach angle, the radiator is raised 3 inches. I don't know if the Trailhawk front bumper is mounted any higher.

To raise the radiator you would need a Trailhawk lower core support. All Renegade's already have the provisions to mount the upper radiator retaining clips higher in them.

... does that mean that you now need the Trailhawk front bumper cover also? idk.

Item number 1 should be in the Jack bag.

The rear Red Hook, for my Trailhawk is mounted to the factory Tow Receiver.

@puddlesplasher I don't know if this is what you were referring too. lol

I have ALL of these parts listed here. My problem is, shipping, and what all do you really need or want?

If you want to put a Trailhawk front bumper cover, Front Bumper, Red Hooks with mounting brackets and hardware (minus item 4), Lower Radiator Core Support... I'm your Huckleberry.
