Front tow hook?

I am looking to mount the front plate off the front tow hook location but I do not seem to be able to find the tow hook to take any measurements off of. Do we even get tow hooks for this bad boy?

There is a concealed single recovery hook (minus the hook) mounting location on the front of the WK2 SRT8. Look at the lower grill and to the left of the Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) lens and you’ll see a false door in the grill. Pop it open and take a look, the rear of the door says “Tow Hook” IIRC.

I did see that door, just no hook to insert. I figured Jeep would have included a tow hook with the spare tire kit...

No hook is included with the SRT8.

LOL..having a hook attaced would be like having a piece of food stuck to your front tooth! but a quick connect/disconnect hook would be nice and i would store in the back trap door.

This is why I was asking. I wanted to see how long the tow hook is so this company can see if they currently have anything that will clear the front fascia on the WK2

MTGOAT: I'm kinda disgusted that Chrysler couldn't provide us with a hook. What does it actually cost per rig. A couple bucks?!?! That's what I mean by REALLY. There is a spot for it, but when we wind up in the ditch backwards, tow trucks can't pull us out? REALLY? I love my SRT8 but come on.
