will these tow hook fit?

I am looking to install some tow hooks on my 07 commander. Looking on the internet i have seen tow hooks for as high as $80.00 and today stumbled upon these from JC Whitney for $19.99 in chrome! Anyone know if they will fit the commander?

You link doesn't take us to a specific tow hook. The only chrome ones I see for that price should work. You might have to drill at least one hole. Make sure the bolts are grade 5 or 8 if you ever plan on using them. I just put some on mine that weren't made specifically for our jeeps. You can see them in my garage. Oh your probably going to have to trim the bumper.

Those will fit just fine. Cut your front bumper off, drill some holes, bolt it on and
you are done.

Sal did a good job showing how he installed his front hooks. I am sure the one's
you are looking at are very similar to the hooks Sal installed.

You will have to trim a little off the bumper where the hooks go though. But it
isnt much and not noticeable. Shears work or a dremel tool.

I used the Reese hooks, had to drill an extra hole, I have used them several
times.

One tip I bolted one hole in and used the second hole on the hook as a guide for my drill bit. I also had to put the bumper on and off a couple of times to get enough of the bumper trimmed so it would fit. You can always remove more bumper but you can't add it back if you take to much off. I used my dremel to make the cuts never though about tin snips I'll have to try that next time I'm trimming stuff.
