    New ones and used ones are available on eBay... used ones are listed around $75 asking price (but not selling) ... so does anyone have any of the OE front tow hooks, with brackets and hardware that they'd like to off-load?

    Perhaps they've been taking up space in your garage, or you took them off for your bumper upgrade or for whatever reason and they're just sitting there... doing nothing. I'll buy them for a reasonable price for my 03. I don't want to pay eBay pricing, otherwise I'd just get them there.

    Not trying to be cheap, just reasonable. They aren't super strong for recovery points, and may be bent or rusty.. let's be honest, I mostly want these for the aesthetic appeal, the look, less so for function.

    Thanks for checking!

    I have a set,new condition with used M bolts.
    PM me your zip and I'll check if it's economic to ship from Canada.

    Not so economical it turns out.
    international shipping is the killer/by weight.
    3.567kgs cost $30cdn.
    If I ask $50cdn+$30cdn shipping=$70usd+/-exchange rate of the day.

    Yeah, must be some duty fees or added tax in there too I'm sure. Thanks for checking anyways; If nothing else pans out, I may get a hold of you again, later.

    I'll have to do some digging but I think I have my old two tow hooks that were removed for ARB bumper install. Not sure about mounting hardware but I'll check. Box is buried somewhere in my garage.

    That'd be fantastic. Whatever you can find... I appreciate the offer to look for the old parts. I'll check back here if/when you find anything.

    Thanks!

    OK I found the tow hooks. (Was on vacation so that was the delay in responding to you) They are connected to the mounting brackets but I don't have the original hardware for the three mounting holes on each bracket. If you still want them and will cover shipping and throw in an extra $20 for me I'll send them your way. Send me a PM if interested and I'll send you pictures.

    Cool, yes interested so pictures are appreciated. All good on the vacation delay, none of us get enough vacation, that's for sure!

    Pricing sounds good too. If it's easier than uploading them here, you can text me the pictures to my cell- will send that in a PM. I can review and then share my shipping address and get your information for payment- I assume paypal?

    Thanks again.

    Jason

    Not sure if my PM response I sent you went through. I'll send you the pictures tonight after I get home from work. Paypal is perfect.
