    I noticed it looked like something missing there in mine too. Is there supposed to be a tow hook with the vehicle??

    After looking at multiple pictures on this forum, I don't see a place to use a tow hook. At least not like the 5th gens.

    Could you take a picture of that item removed from its holder? Hard to tell exactly what it might be.

    There is no tow hook for the 6the gen.. no holes in any of the bumpers for it.

    Signing my contract for an Aviator tomorrow. Somewhere in some forum I have seen a mention of no charge map updates if I have it in the contract. Any idea where I could find this?

    Not aware of that. You can try calling the dealer or Lincoln and ask them.

    Here’s what the 2020 manual says. I don’t have any hook either and haven’t followed up. Are we sure there are no such access panels on the 6th gen?

    My ST has the hole and the threaded spot behind the blank. Nothing in the rear, probably because we have a the receiver back there.

    One in the front, see my post above, I did not find one in the back and again, understand it because it would not be needed with the receiver being capable of having a recovery apparatus put into it.

    Hmmm . . . guess a call to the dealer is in order for those of us with empty slots.

    Not sure this is the exact one to fit the spot with the rear tire... but maybe:

    Yup.. I am gonna stop tomorrow and check with my parts guy. We have made a pretty good relationship. Between all the stuff I ordered for my 6.0 and then my F150... he knows me well. Heck one day I was in there we went out back during his lunch and ran a ntiro RC buggy he had with him. Luckily I used to fly RC Helis, and plenty of buggys so when he handed my the controller, I was not a big noob :)

    If the tow eye exists, he will find it.

    With the issues CAP has with QC, I wouldn't be surprised if the have just forgotten to put them in.

    I did not want to make a new thread just for this but does anyone know when you buy for Explorer, where can you find your vehicle key code to if needed, leave the keys inside if you have the code. Dealer did not give it to me and I still have to double check my owners manual package for the 2nd time just in case.

    In the glove box was a small white card a little bigger than a credit card.
