Where to attach tow hooks on a 2wd?

Hello everyone, well maybe I did not search good enough, but can someone point me in the right direction as to where to attach tow hooks on the front of the Ranger? As in my sig I have the 2wd XLT and now that winter is coming I would like to have some good sturdy tow hooks on the front of the truck, and just at a quick glance there appears to be no easy place like on the 4WD versions. So if anyone has done this please let me know how or what you did or just help me with some ideas, thanks so much for your help!

Somthing else I forgot, I want to try and keep it looking stock/factory without hacking up the bumper or what ever else on the front end.

Like directly underneath the radiator by the bumper, in that area? If thats what you mean, I would have to look, I did'nt drive the truck to work today, so I would have to check that specificly once I get home.
