  1. Rubber cap for tow hook point: part number?

    Exterior
    (Export) Patriots have two tow eye points, one in the front bumper (passenger side) and one in the rear bumper (left side). These points can be used to screw in a tow eye, for towing :) They are covered with a small round rubber cap to keep them dry. However, on my 2010 Patriot, the rear cap is...
  2. Want to get the tow goods for the front bumper

    Exterior
    I have an 08 4x4 riot and want to get a couple of the tow hooks for the front. I know I have to cut holes in the bumper, not sure what else. But I can't seem to find them. So a link or different thread would be cool thank you

  6. Replica Tow Hooks

    Exterior
    Hey can anyone post a few pictures of different angles of their tow hooks before installing them?? Maybe stretch a tape measure along them, with a brief note about the size/orientation of each bolt...? I'm getting the feeling that there are a lot of handy people with patriots on this site and...
