Brackets

With no real frame to bolt a towhook to, Jeep added brackets that run down the unibody and tie into the bumper, which the towhooks then bolt to. We didn't want to spend a fortune because we plan on upgrading the front bumper later, so we hit the junkyards looking for towhooks and brackets. We found the brackets, but only on early XJs. The bumper for the later XJ is different, and we had to weld the late-model mounts to the early towhook bracket to make it work.
