Where could I attach a couple of tow hooks in the front?

    I was just wondering if anyone had photos of where they mounted front tow hooks on their trucks. Is mounting on a front pushbar a feasable place, or not strong enough? I'd really want them attached to the frame. If this question's been answered already in past posts, I apologize for the repetition.

    I bolted a piece of 1/2" x 6" plate between the frame rails and bolted the tow hooks to it. I can email you pics.

    Bolt/weld to both outside of frame rail and bottom. That way you double your chance of getting a good angle for a straight pull. Also, the hooks w/ clips or full hoops are great for holding straps on.

    Thanks, I gotta check that out. POFF sent me some photos, and you're right. I definitely have to have the hooks with the retainers on 'em!
