Just purchased a 2014 Cherokee trail hawk but the tow hooks were removed due to being flat towed. Looking to purchase a set and/or throw in the flat tow setup if needed. Thanks
So I guess you are looking for used parts ? Have you considered salvage yards ?Just purchased a 2014 Cherokee trail hawk but the tow hooks were removed due to being flat towed. Looking to purchase a set and/or throw in the flat tow setup if needed. Thanks
They come up from time to time. Check some of the facebook groups as well. I was in the same situation when I bought my 19 used. I went with mopar replacement parts, and cost a little over $300 for all of it.Trailhawk currently has a flat tow set up on it. Previous owner installed it. Looking to remove and install some original tow hooks. Will trade or add the flat tow equipment if someone has the original tow hooks. I’ve searched some salvage yards around here but no luck.
I’ve been looking but they’re $233 each now for the replacementsThey come up from time to time. Check some of the facebook groups as well. I was in the same situation when I bought my 19 used. I went with mopar replacement parts, and cost a little over $300 for all of it.
Ouch. Join a few of the facebook groups and see if someone has one they will sell. You might also be able to look in to the tow hooks for non trail hawks. I'm not sure if they will line up or not, but will be stronger than the stock ones. You can call hazard sky as they will probably know the answer. They used to be mid 200 dollars, so not sure if the price is still the same or not, but that would be cheaper.I’ve been looking but they’re $233 each now for the replacements
That’s very true. If I can’t find some at a decent price I’ll just remove the flat tow parts that are on it and leave it as isI have a TH and drive off road quite a lot.
I only needed the front recovery hook once in the past 7 years so the Wrangler in front of me could pull out of a mud hole.
What are the chances you will ever need them?
It's an awful lot of money to spend just to look pretty.
I’ll be doing the work myself. It’s rare I take one of my vehicles to the dealership for any work. I’m pretty mechanically inclined. I’ve already watched one video and doesn’t seem like there is much to it. I’m going to replace the whole housing instead of just o-rings, cracked or not. I’m in there so I might as well do it all. Yup and plugs at the same time. As far as Toyotas go, we had bought a 2014 fj back in 2015. It gave us nothing but problems right off the lot. It was in the shop every 2 weeks. Finally gave up and traded it inYou are probably correct. Let a Jeep dealer fix it, don't want to get coolant into the oil.
Have them replace the spark plugs, also.
Either the oil cooler housing broke or the O rings failed.
Forget the recovery hooks and driving lights, you have more important things to get fixed.
Good luck, keep us posted.
Get your daughter a used Toyota, she deserves a more reliable vehicle than a Jeep.
Use the TH for your off road adventures.
Yes it has the 3.2. I haven’t had a chance to dig into and look but I’m assuming that’s what it is. I would really like to get the updated Dorman version but it looks like it will be awhile before they’re restocked. Looking at the service history I don’t see it ever being replaced and with the mileage, I’m sure the o-rings are flattened. I’ll have to check into that air bleederI replaced mine on my 2014 . is it the 3.2l. I watched videos for months while waiting for them to be restocked. very nervous when time to do it but actually wasn't bad. the fuelrail clip was the only thing I broke. bought the air bleeder from HF and it was a time saver getting the fluids out of the valley
