Front chair/bench

i was recently sitting.. well attempting to sit.. on the front of my truck.. and realized its not easy to do...

so i was thinking about making some type of chair or bench that has hooks that slide into the tow hooks, then like 2 legs to keep it from goin other directions..


any thoughts?

A front hitch might be an easier and sturdier way to attach one. You might not even need legs then.

well if i had a front hitch i would look into that, but already in the plans for the front is a skid plate/bumper and an 8000 lb winch...
