Rear tow hook, yes but front tow hook, no. The front tow hook is detached and you have to pop off that little circular cover thats on your front bumper, screw in the tow hook to be able to tow your car.

You can buy nice ones like this http://shop.microimageonline.com/pro...5&productId=10

...and attached to the uniframe. Your "bumper" is made out of plastic and foam, hardly a sturdy surface to attach a single point of weight interference, wouldn't you say?

I'm sure you and everyone else understood what he was talking about. Lets not get too technical here. It's just a tow hook and he requested pictures, not a lame response.

Yes, of course.....mounting point is behind the circular cover on the RH side of the front bumper.

Yes, thank you FunctionSpec. Maybe they think I am just a 10 year old punk hanging around.
