Re: Tow Hooks on non TH?

If you want to fit recovery hooks for function rather than form, why not just fit a base plate for flat towing. Please refer to my post in another thread:

Flat towing behind an RV

This system was from Demco for about $400.

NB for flat towing (not just recovery) you will need to have Active Drive II

I agree. If anyone is going to take the time to remove the fascia for mounting recovery points, just buy base plates that are designed for the non-TH. I installed Blue Ox for $370. Each has a heavy duty loop for the safety chain attachment. Perfect as recovery points. They don't interfere with the tech group radar if you have that. They require very little trimming of the black mesh in the fascia. I used a hacksaw blade. Easy. And they look good when done. Hardly anyone notices them and when I point them out I tell them they're my James Bond 50 cal road clearing devices. They look like the muzzle of a machine gun.

In the 5th picture in, you can see the safety cable hooked into the safety cable eye. If you have any questions, let me know.
