Default Mod3 - Tow Hooks

First off I want to thank Rumbles1960 for the excellent post on installing tow hooks on the Gen 4 Ram Sport.
http://www.ramforumz.com/showthread....ght=2010+hooks
It lead to my purchase and subsequent successful installation of an option that I wanted, and could not order from the factory.
Thanks Rumbles -

As Rumbles post covers the installation so well, I will not do a tech write up, but will post a few pix to compliment Rumbles post, and a few more to show off my truck with the new tow hooks installed.

As I took many pictures to detail the process, If anyone is interested in any particular part, let me know and can provide you with the details and pix.


Pic 1 - The box....or at least the label that shows P/N, etc -



Pic 2 - What's in the Box -



Pic 3 - Before tow hooks -



Pic 4,5&6 - After tow hook installation -







As it turns out, the only reason they are not available from factory is the bumper filler plate (specific to the Sport) is NOT made with the cut outs!

Another astounding fact - Front suspension and Transfer case skid plates are not offered on the Sport, because they are part of the 'Protection Group'....which includes tow hooks. Therefore, you cannot factory order the skid plates, because you can't order tow hooks, because they don't make the plastic thing with a hole in each end ......

That my Ram friends, is an 'Executive' decision.....not an engineering or sales decision.

Coming soon to a Ramforumz Thread near you - "Mod 4 - Skid Plates"!
