Body lift + front recovery point

Ok so after I get my body lift on the bumper is now going to be covering the tow hooks. What do you guys use for a front recovery point ? I don't like the no valence look. I was thinking about cutting a hole in the valence so i can still access the tow hooks good idea or no ?

Yea you can notch the bumper to fit the tow hooks, it really isn't that noticable and it looks fine.

I used chrome L-Metal (its aluminum) and bonded it on with clear silicone....Its held up now for about a year with no issues.

Thats about the one thing that seperates my truck from the rest.
