    Does anyone know where to get a set of the '81-87 "S" shaped factory tow hooks? I've been looking for a set for my '88 Blazer for weeks now and I've called all junkyards in my area with no luck. For the one set of these hooks I have seen on e-bay in the past weeks, I was outbid on them today which infuriated me since it was in the last few minutes of the auction. Is there perhaps an online store that sells these or have you guys seen them anywhere else? I've searched the net for hours and can't seem to find any.

    Thanks so much,

    Wes

    The only tow hooks I can seem to find from LMC are aftermarket hooks which will require drilling new holes.

    Post up a "wanted ad" in the classified section.

    They'll show up here in the for-sale section now and again. They are less desireable for the hardcore crowd as they're smalller than the 73-80's and harder to custom mount, so they shouldn't be that hard to come by.

    Your membership may or may not allow you to post/contact folks from the ads here, I can never remember, but it is one of the great parts of paid membership (you're welcome Steve :) )

    Okay, e-mail sent. I'm going to get a membership very soon but I'm kinda short on money now since I just graduated from college and don't have a job yet. Hey, anyone looking for an entry level mechanical engineer in the Dallas area? I suppose if I've got money for tow hooks then I've got money for a membership though, huh? Thanks so much for the help guys.
