    I'm not sure. I saw some at the junkyard from some 80's trucks and the mounting portion looked kind of weird and snakey. They may have had more than two mounting holes, but I'm not sure. It's really hidden up there in the frame.

    I tried to get them at the junkyard, but they were totally, like, one with the truck due to rust. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    Is it easy for you to get a picture of them? I could maybe look at it and try to visualize whether it could fit or not. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    There is a split between the years of tow hooks.

    Up to '80 is the kind you are describing.

    The '81 to '91 are different than the '80 and older types of hooks. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    Hey, not meaning to jerk you around here... it's my birthday and my father in-law gave me some of the hooks I need. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif My wife told him I was trying to wrench them off a K5 at the junkyard and he went there and just had the guy torch them off. $5 for each hook, plus $10 to torch them off... not bad.

    So I guess I don't need them anymore.

    You might think about putting them on E-bay. I saw a set on there some guy is trying to sell for $75. They were slightly bigger, but if you could get half that it'd be pretty sweet.

    Thanks anyway. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
