96- tow hook brackets on 99

Will the tow hook brackets that came factory from a 96 or older Cherokee work on 97+ Cherokees? There's a few in the JY and my wife's 99 has no front recovery point...

The should work without any issue, the hole pattern is the same between early and late years.
I'm not a complete idiot, some parts are missing.

The brackets and the Cherokee frames are the same from 1984-2001. The welded on bumper brackets fit either 1984-1996 OR 1997-2001. You can grind of the bumper brackets or drill another hole in your stock bumper.

If you use the original hooks, you'll also probably have to shave out a little of the plastic skirt under the bumper to allow anything to hook onto them, but that's no big deal either.
