For the hooks you can cut out a spot on your valance and the only way I think to lift the hitch is to cut it then re-weld it.

HAHAHAHA. x2!!








Only option for the hitch is getting it cut and welded up. I'd ditch the hooks and add a front hitch for a recovery point. Oh wait, I did both of those to mine. lol.

Bingo. There are no "drop brackets" for your hitch, because 1) it has to go up, not down, and 2) it is attached to your frame, you are going to be hard pressed to match that strength with more brackets

i had mine cut and rewelded up. now its tucked up under the bumper pretty good. i love it.

and as for front tow hooks, well i had a custom bumper built lol

but, i believe there is a hitch out there for lowered rangers thats meant to fit behind a roll pan. looks like it'd fit perfect. if i wouldnt have been able to find anyone to weld up my hitch, i would have tried one out.
