I'm running calico this weekend and I have a front tow point but do not have ne rear tow point. Do you guys think i'll need a rear one and if so what do you suggest for tow hooks? I'm running a 3 1/2" lift 32" tires and fully skidded

Fastest and easiest for rear towpoint is a hitch. The towhook that was offerd on XJ's requires a funky L shaped bracket.

You probably will not need the rear towpoint as much as the front (unless you're going to have to pull someone up), but still it's a good to have it.

If I was you I would take a big breaker bar and some pb blaster to one of the boneyards (depending where you're at, try hitting one in Santa Fe Springs or Wilmington) and you have a very good chance of scoring a hitch for under $50 (probably way under). Or spend ~100 and get one from Uhaul or place like that. IF you don't have the rear skid though you will need nutstrips (so then again the boneyard is a better choice)
