Tow hook on the '14

Anyone install a tow hook on the 2014 using the access opening in the grill?

Bumping this! I just had someone email me asking if I had tow hooks for the 2014. I've been searching for pics similar to this... What's behind that cover on the grille? It looks like it's just a hole back there? Is there something to bolt a tow hook too?

Been wanting to put one on mine. It is the frame behind the door and not very deep.

It's just the steel bumper behind the cover.

Im almost 100% sure the access is for rigging up a tow hook. The issue is that they didn't pre fab anything to mount to. I can only think of one way to utilize this access and have a removable tow hook. I plan on drilling a hole into the bumper behind the access cover and welding a threaded tube inside. Then screw in a I-bolt and tighten with a jam nut.

Guessing the plastic cover is for access for mounting a tow eye on the European version. Is so , we get the access door and nothing to screw the tow eye into without modifying the steel bumper/impact support.
