Reinstalled Tow Hooks

I just finished re-installing my FX4 factory tow hooks today. After installing a body lift my hooks would not fit unless I trimmed the plastic part of the bumper. I have seen it done before but wasnt excited about doing that. There for I did some modification an was able to put them back on with the factory look. Have some picts for anyone intersted. Let me know what you think.

Im not planning on using them unless I have to. They might work in a simple situation but Ide never use then if I was realy stuck.
