1987 Front Tow Hooks?

I've been trying to figure out a way to throw some tow hooks so im not only yankable from the back. I have two good frame points up front but I can't find a tow hook like the one I need to work right.

These are kinda the ones I need so you get the idea.

Awesome 3 second paint drawing ftw!

Anyone have some or maybe have seen a set online?

Do you have a hitch? Buy a receiver hook.

Nah, cann't find one for a decent price, If I went with one I'd have to modify it to fit because I can't seem to find one for a first gen.

I can't spend money just to cut it up. Unless someone knows of a good hitch that'll fit out of the box.

I'd rather have a reciever up front anyway, then I would buy a reciever hook. It make getting my boat in the tight corners nice.

Those are chevy hooks, I have broken tons of them off. They were on blazers and s10s. They like to straighten out if you pull hard
