    At least the front hooks and my seats that fellow member "paulmoon" shipped me from California. The rear bumper was one if not the last rear bumper kit 4X4Iron shipped. Had to chop about six inches off the frame at the rear to get it to mount right. That muther is heavy too!!! Now in the process of fabricating a spare tire carrier (unconventional design) and then a through the front bumper receiver to replace the current front one which is to low when the winch is in it.

    I would be scared to tow from those hooks mounted to that brush guard. Those things aren't made to support that sort of load. I'd bolt them to the factory location on the frame ;)

    they will be fine i think, if you bolt those things through your bumper, to the frame, they are solid, ive been pulled with mine, no problems.

    Nice setup man.
    Although....i would seriously consider NOT using those hooks. just my experience...although your's look mounted well. supply store...d-rings.......




    ***edit**** and the rear bumper looks great too.

    whoever said it....I would NOT put those back into the stock location on the frame either.....at least not w/o beefing up the frame ends or welding them w/ bolts (those holes are real close to the frame rail ends there...yes i have pulled them through the frame :crazy: insert woozy feeling)
