Straight to the frame rails. Would probably have to notch or cutout the lower plastic valance.

Local trucking suppliers or farm equipment stores. I got about 2 dozen 15,000lb hooks for $6/ea. and some 25,000lb D-shackles for $11/ea.

Why the HELL are you pulling a log in reverse? It's a log. It's on a road. Pull it in a forward gear.

And really, you should be using chains on logs. You'll go through straps like they are going out of style.
