Default Any 2013 Sport's with front tow hooks?

Anyone have a 2013 sport with front tow hooks installed? It has to be 2013, not a 2012 as the plastic casing is shaped and sized differently.

If anyone has done this, can you post pictures of how it looks. The dealer showed me how it will look and they sit too low and I don't like the way it looks. The tow hooks basically rest on the front fascia.

I'm just trying to figure out if my dealer, who couldn't figure out how to install Bilstein's, is doing something wrong.

x's 2. I would like to know about the tow hooks as well. When I bought the truck the wouldn't put them on as he said they don't make them for the sport. Now I know they make tow hooks that fit but like you say they may rub the front facia.
dealer said:
182.50+tax installed
142.00+ tax without installation.

Either way seems a bit much for me. But I would love to have them.

Xs 3. I want the tow hooks also. My dealer pretty much said I would get them on my sport but I learned here that the sport grill is different which is something I don't think my dealer knew. Maybe when it comes in I will ask why it doesn't have tow hooks and see what they say.

It was only yesterday I was reading a thread on this forum about this same thing. The OP said he purchased the factory made tow hooks for his Sport. They bolt on just as they do on all off the other models, but you need to cut the openings into the Sport bumper/facia. Some people have the skill to do a neat and clean "factory look" job. I sure don't, but would love to see some pictures posted.

They do bolt on the same, but the fascia is sized differently so they don't sit centered. They sit low and basically rest on the front fascia. That's why I wanted to see some pictures
