Default Tow Hooks for 2002 4.7

Has anyone installed tow hooks for a 2002 1500. I have seen a lot of people with 4th gen with this mod, but nothing for 2002 that I found at least.

I was looking at doing the same thing. From what I've seen my frame has holes right where the tow hooks should go. I am going to take a trip to the junk yard and see if I can pull some tow hooks off a wrecked truck. If they mount up right I think the only other thing we would have to do is cut the little plastic piece right below the upper fascia.

Look at this site
http://www.google.com/#hl=en&cp=24&g...w=1024&bih=550

Look for Homemade Tow Hooks done with pics

several of the tow hooks that were for the 2002 - 2008 models, have a poor weight rating, or are made quite poorly.
Check some of the comments made on the other sites on that page, the hooks from a 2003 2500 line up, but the bracket needs to be modified in some applications like with the Sport model
