So I went to 2 local dealers yesterday looking for a rear tow hook for my TJ. Guess what??? D/C has discontinued the maufacture of tow hooks for the TJ. Now I know this doesn't sound like a life altering event, but if they stopped making these, what else have or will they stop making? What if one was attached to my Jeep already, and I needed a replacement because on an accident? I know it's something small, but I'm scared that I should be worried about future parts. I know I can buy a rear tow hook from Quadratec, et all, but I really want one where I don't have to drill into the frame. Is this the beginning of the end?

I'm not worried. There is enough aftermarket support that parts won't be hard to find. For example, look what you can still get for CJs. I doubt there are a lot of new OE factory parts available for them.

Yeah, I won't lose any sleep over it - aftermarket is typically much cheaper anyway. However, I did recently discover that DC discontinued seatbelts for my 2000 Durango. Rolling Eyes
