    Duhh, from the Heavy Duty tow hook store, it's right next door to the duck tape store at the man mall[​IMG]..... Did you try looking at HD shackles and fabing them on, thats what I want to do for the back of mine.. I just have those cute crome hooks on the front cause they look cool[​IMG]...

    just go with heavy duty bumpers, tow hooks break to easy, but i do like my new billet grill and new head light doors :).
    just loop ur tow rope around your bumpers . its safer and easyer when the mud is just under or over ur doors lol

    Check the for sale board, I know bigdaddyof2 is selling a set. What style you looking for? Check a tractor supply store they have some real heavy duty ones.

    Check out the factory ones from GM, they are pretty stout.

    Im gonna get slayed for this but, the loops on the newer Super Duty Fords look to be just about bomb proof. The 1st run of them was cast and had a real small hole. The 2nd design is welded steel and have a bigger opening. Just look at the front of any 4x4 SD Ford and youll see'em. I have a set of both styles in my box at work and will most likely use them on my Blazer.

    No flaming here on those hooks You know F*rd has done their research on those, since they are always being pulled out.[​IMG]they have to be some strong hooks for a truck that weights that much too.
