Exclamation Tow hooks

I would like to install tow hooks in the front bumper of my 2011 Ram. Are there existing bolt holes in the frame, and how involved is this mod?

I bought the Mopar tow hooks through the dealership, you could likely find them cheaper

The dealer popped out my bumper insert
installed the hooks
trimmed insert to fit

These Dodge Ram Tow Hooks are rated with a towing capacity up to 5,500 pounds or 1.5 times the vehicles GVWR (depending on vehicle). These tow hooks securely mount to the frame and are fully tested for durability and load capacity.


The after market ones are sort of Flimsy

It's a really easy install and one of my first mods. It says that they will not work on the sport however all that is needed is to trim out the holes on the front fascia, just like GTYankee's pic shows. The mounting brackets are already there, just remove two bolts and add one that comes with the tow hooks. Definitely a worthwhile mod to do. Price is around $150 from the dealer.
