Saw several Cybertrucks today (other vids coming), one with installed front tow hooks / recovery points.

For a while we’ve known the attachment points would be behind these trim caps, but I’m not aware of any sightings of these external toe/recovery points installed.

As for the rear, this build (VIN…710) did not have rear hooks installed, but similar rear attachments points are there, under these similarly spaced trim caps in the rear:

I’d assume that the tow/recovery hooks for the rear would come alongside replacement trim caps to clean up that area, so it doesn’t look quite as sloppy as the unit we’ve seen with the rear fascia removed.

I sure hope they're enabled via touchscreen.

Now that I knew what to look for, I assumed it unlikely that *none* of the prior sightings included these front recovery points

went and quickly perused recent sightings and (another VIN …7XX build)

Yea, the 724 build? I thought I'd pointed these out but maybe not.

Glad you got to see Cybertruck!!!!!

What did you think of it in person?!

Posted my pics back up on Twitter again, helps people also point out what they've notice and quickly got this one back:

This is a buddy that spots typically @ the engineering service center in Fremont. He actually sent me this pic this morning, but didn't point out the recoveries. I kind of thought it wasn't a big deal, but cool to see people care and are excited. :)

Wouldn't the rear just use the hitch for tow hooks? That's all my current 2500 has currently in the rear (does have tow hooks on front)

Tesla got right what Toyota and their TRD Pro Tundra did not.

That would look so cool replacing those tow eyes with a pair of muzzle brakes instead. The 007 version :ROFLMAO:
