No tow hooks????
 
why is it that they dont make tow hooks for the 02 ram?or if they do where can i find them?i have looked all over and they didnt make them for the half ton from my understanding.here are my thoughts...

i want to get a thick plate to run across behind the little black plastic piece on the front bumper.the problem with that is i have heard if you weld it to the frame it actually weakens the frame so what should i do?

from the plate i want to find a way to hook up some really big clevases to the plate in a way that wont bend the plate if im getting pulled out.

my thoughts are to have them kind of like the ones on the bottom of this truck, but have them coming out of the opening just above where they are in the pics.

what do you guys think?would this look good?more importantly would it get the job done?

its because you have the sport. and the 2nd generation (maybe 3rd as well) the larimie never came with tow hooks aswell. i believe its for a more clean sleek look, im with you though...its a truck...give me the truck accessories! lol

did you look at the site that i typed above
the posting date that i wanted you to look at was posted July 2nd 2009 & if you read it, it would say Homemade Tow Hooks... DONE. (with pics) 3rd Gen Ram. ... Plymouth Laser RST-2002 Dodge Stratus R/T Coupe-2006 Dodge Ram 1500 Laramie ...

i can't mention the website, because other dodge forum websites are NOT allowed in here

they use a D ring instead of the hooks & its all in pictures as it was done
