Icon5 Pic Request! Tow hook mount

Trying to see if anyone has a picture of where the tow hooks mount. I should have mine in the next couple of days. Wanted to get an idea of where I will be installing them.

Thanks!

The 04 Edges don't come with the holes in the crossmembers for them...you'll have to drill new ones.

At least my truck and Roach's didn't have them.

It's possible it did if it was an early 04.

I do have an early 04. It was built I believe late 03 or very early 04. I hope I dont have to drill holes that would be a pita.

I wish mine had the holes, I've got some stock black towhooks laying around but I'm too darn lazy and don't own a powerful enough drill to get through there... :-(

you have to drill the holes, not a huge deal..bumper needs to come off too, to get to the top one.

Holy cow. last time i went to the dealer and asked how much they said 30 for XLT hooks and 110 for level II hooks. That must have been for one only though.
