... a set of 10,000lb tow hooks?
I snagged a pair pretty cheap but I ain't got nowhere to mount them up front.
I'm thinking a slab of 3/8" or 1/2" thick steel should be more than enough. Sort of a L shaped bracket. I need to drop down about 3" and forward about 2" so the hooks will just stick out the open area right above those little fog lights or right where those fog lights are in the pic (they've been moved behind the grille since this pic).
Looks like I can drill holes in the bracket to bolt on beside the bumper mounts on the frame & use some longer bolts to hold the bracket to the mount & drill 2 holes in the lower area of the bracket for the tow hooks.
One of these days, I'd like to build a cross bar behind the bumper for a hitch, but alas I have no metal and no welder.
I don't want to weld to the frame because of the future hitch mod.
No need for ultra-super heavy duty building here, I'll only use the hooks in case I get stuck in the ice/snow & need a little help getting free.... no pulling the truck out of a 6' deep mud pit or anything crazy like that.
