Default 2013 Sport 4x4 -add tow hooks?

I just found out the 2013 Ram 1500 Sport 4wd Crew I ordered will NOT come with tow hooks...I find that odd.

Anyone know if I can bolt a set on and what will fit?

I had a set of Dodge tow hooks put on my 12 Sport. They were a direct bolt on. Just have to cut the insert so the hooks stick through.

Have any pics of what it looks like cut out? Did you cut it out or have a body shop or something cut?

Its just plastic and trims easily with a sharp razor knife - you can usaully find the hooks for a reasonable price on ebay. If you arent comfortable trimming it I have seen other posts about getting the proper piece from your dealer for about $20 or so - it may have even been less.

My prior (well current while waiting on order) is 2007 Sport 4x4 with tow hooks stock. Can't believe new ones don't come with it. But $160 and an afternoon trimming plastic and bolting them up is no big deal.

I just had the dealer do it, all they did was cut it with a razor. Looks fine, sorry no pics.
