Toyota Fortuner tow hook


Recommended Posts

Hi, 

in other markets you can add a tow hook no issue, does anyone know of anyone in Abu Dhabi that fits the tow hook to the Fortuner? I don’t want the welded ones, there is no need to do this.

 

thanks

The tow hook is one of the most important parts of your car when you decide to venture offroad. And it's great that you paying extra attention to this to keep you safe and unstuck always.

I'm surprised that why Fortuner doesn't have existing tow points or is it broken with an extra hard tug....?

The best way to deal with this issue is to buy a "rated" tow hook from ACE, Speedex or any reputed off-road shop with a 3 bolt pattern and get them installed by any fabricator in AD.

The key thing here is to find the rating of 4.5 tons (pretty standard) and above + 3 bolts (extra safe than 2 bolts). While at it, also make sure to source the high-strength bolt as many tow hooks don't come with a bolt and the local fabricator might use an inferior-strength bolt.

On good brands like Bushranger, ARB etc, ratings are generally engraved (like below) on it so you can trust them, stay from replicas with printed ratings or stickers as they are generally fake.

Installation shouldn't be rocket science for any decent fabricator or body shop if you explain your concern clearly and supply them with your choice of tow hook and bolt.

Reese, Total Hitch and Curt are some good known brands for trailer hitch that get bolted on both side chassis channels. No welding is needed.

I'm not well versed with the bike rack, but I'm sure once your 1-1/4 inch hitch is sorted, you can find the bike rack much easier.
