Default Put 2500/3500 Tow Hooks on my 1500[pics]

I put 06-08 2500/3500 hooks on my 2005 1500 and I snapped some pictures.

Front bumper off... The hardest part was unhooking the stupid connector for the headlights.




Hook without bumper






I need to go back to my dads and borrow his dremel to cut out the plastic fascia to clean it up.

Install was easy just had to drill my own holes in the frame.

I like that. I think I might have to do this for mine. Make sure you snap some pictures with the black plastic cut out

Ehh not that far, but it came with brackets that would push it out more, but the whole kit is for a 06-08 so it didn't line up.

Unfortunately I wont have a dremel until next weekend so the plastic piece is just going to stay off.
