I need to add tow hooks, but where?

My wife got stuck in the snow the other day, so went to pull her out with a tow strap and noticed I could see anything to attach to. Are there tow hooks under the plastic shields? Has any one add some to the front or back that has a picture? Thanks!

Just curious, what are the specs on her commander and how deep was the snow that she got stuck in? I have been in snow well over 2 feet deep with no problems.

I'm thinking she got stuck cause she didn't turn off the electronics. It would have detected wheel spin then and applied the brakes to the wheel spinning and maybe even cut the engine.

First thing to do unless your really stuck, press and hold the ESP button about 10 sec, until it shows EPS off in the EVIC. Then if you need to put it in 4Low.

Or am I way off base?

She was trying to run over an icy snow plow burm for the neighbors so they could get their car in. She ended up angled downhill and tilted sideways toward the burm. She did not turn off the electronics. If she turned off the electronics would there only be one wheel trying to get traction? We just got the Commander on Valentine's Day so we don't know all the tricks yet.

When you turn off the electronics it sends power to all wheels.
