If you really hate the asymmetric, your best bet is to take off that hook or go with aftermarket bumper.

JK has it....since JK, and it has been a decade I haven't seen anyone make a passenger side hook

You could paint the driver's side toe hook black, makes it less noticeable.

The asymmetrical look is killing me.
At one point--but no longer--I too had desire for this tow hook, even if it was for symmetry in tie down purposes, not visual.

While I could find no OEM or aftermarket solution then, I have more recently noticed the symmetry in 2 tow hooks in some of the new Gladiators. Perhaps there's a compatible part under that vehicle's inventory that will work for you.

If so, please share.

@JeepCares, please do!. There have actually been A TON of requests for this in the forum, but on different threads too. This would be a huge seller based on what I've seen in dozens of various comments! I'll be a buyer for sure!

Bumping this... aside from the Maximus 3 option, are there any other aftermarket rear passenger-side tow hook options? Is there any indication that Jeep will be making them in the future?

What's strange is that Chinese knockoff OEM-style rear driver-side tow hooks exist... if those companies mirrored the file they used to make them, they'd sell tons.

there is zero chance that I would buy a “no-name Chinese” knockoff recovery point from some random company. If they are willing to “steal” “intellectual property” I can certainly imagine that the steel used might be a bit suspect too.

find me a known company, preferably HQ’d in the US/Canada and also manufacturing in same. Or, if not manufacturing here, anywhere else BUT China is also fine.

I trust auto parts coming from no-name Chinese companies about as much as “organic” foods coming out of China..... ya, sure.
