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.

    Here is where mine are mounted.One at the end of each frame rail.
    The pic is of my winch mounted behind my factory bumper,looking up from the ground.

    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!
