here's where i'd like to put a set of tow hooks
for obvious reasons i'm nervous about putting anything for recovery near the bumper. i'd like these to be a frame mount, but unless i get the OEM ($$$) hook from ford any hook i get is going to have to have some sort of a drop bracket.
so there are these brackets off the frame already which support the main part of the step bumper. looks pretty strong down there. think it'll hold up enough to tug with? i'd only need to drill 2 holes and trim the bumper a 1/4 inch to get it to work if that's the case.
