tow hooks

I noticed the two holes on each side of my frame for tow hooks, but noticed that i didnt have any. Anyone know where you can get tow hooks like the factory 4wd's? I have looked on ebay, ford parts, and cant seem to find them. any suggestions?

The black ones are standard Ranger tow hooks. The stainless ones mount the same way but can be hard to find used and are very expensive new.

Check for clearance around the grille guard. Sometimes tow hooks interfere and need to be swapped side to side or left off completely.

As for shipping they should fit in a USPS flat rate box and ship anywhere for around $8. Just stop by the post office and pick up a free flat rate box.

Follow the instructions below. On their site, the Collision Catalog is also sometimes called the Body Parts Catalog.
