From the looks of things Billy4x4 took his to a shop and they modified the hitch and the tow hooks to work with a bodylift.

Just take off the front tows. They are not the best anyways for getting jerked out of a hole. I trimed my air dam and I thought it looked like crap so I bought a new one and removed the tows. I did mod my rear hitch to fit back stock.
one day I plan on building a front hitch that will be alot stronger than factory tow hooks.
