    You can find a set of stock hooks on here for cheap usually. They work well for me and have survived a heck of a beating. Just buy a hitch for the rear and get a clevis attachment.

    I mounted up some hooks behind the front bumper and cut holes through the bumper. To pull, I run a chain through both hooks and make a triangle to hook up to.
    As for the rear, I just put a clevis attachment in the receiver.

    Sorry, I don't have any good pics.

    I'm kinda partial to mine. They are ford superduty hooks mounted to the frame horns. I gave them quite a workout extracting other trucks last week and they performed flawlessly.

    i like the superduty hookes, i think ill use that idea :P i removed the hitch on the rear because to be honest, when my bumper is 37 inch's high, i didnt really ever think id need it. I think ill just build a rear bumper where i can mount up some D Rings but i do like the front hooks

    From the body line down and the front edge of the hood, plus the whole interior.

    I carry a More Power Puller.
    I loop through both rings for the front or back pull.

    I believe they are '99 to '06. Yes they are closed loop. No, sorry I don't have any pics behind the bumper, but I indexed them off one existing bumper mount hole and drilled the other two. I will try to take a pic or two of the mount if I can get a good one.

    Here are a couple of auctions for them on the 'bay: ( these aren't my auctions nor do I know the sellers) Linky 1 Linky 2
    note: I found a listing early with a low BIN and got them for $20 shipped so I would try to watch for some cheaper than those I linked above.

    When you get a chance post them up :waytogo:

    $20 shipped is a damn good deal considering the shipping on the other ones are almost that..

    Thanks for the links :thumb:
