From there I had a friend with a CNC make me some very nice "plugs" out of a piece of 1" square stock and I put D rings/clevises in the holes. My buddy cut them so that they could be turned 90 degrees for a side pull. It's been about 4 years and I don't have the specs but they're pretty easy to measure out.

Hope that helps!

Finally someone with some input lol.. Thanks a lot.. You happen to have any pics?

I buried myself trying to cross a creek this winter after my buddy already went through and I could only get pulled out from the front due to the hill behind me and the possibility of ripping my exhaust off. With no front hooks I was pretty nervous hooking onto the axle but that was my only option. Also, with the goofy angle, the chain was pushing up against my bumper. Somehow I lucked out without any damage but I'm definitely looking into some hooks up front.

I think I'm just going to try the Mopar ones I found on amazon even though they are more spendy than I would like. But with no other options that I know of I think its better than nothing..

Try some auto wreckers. You can do it local to you or online to get the best price.

I actually got the tow hooks already, and they are installed. Just went and bought them new online.

I find it crazy how some HD trucks don't come with them. Our 04 2500 Hemi RWD doesn't have tow hooks either. I would search craigslist for yours. I have seen many 2500 tow hooks in my area for your gen, I am sure there will be some for yours. The cummins 2500 and Hemi 2500 should take the same tow hooks, and there is always people wrecking their trucks (sadly Cummins being wrecked) so scrap yards and such should have some for you

I've been looking into putting some on my 04, but I haven't found any on craigslist and Dodge wants way too much. I've seen how the ones with hooks mount and mine is pre-drilled for hooks. I think it would be easy to fabricate some using a steel bar and running them through the plastic insert on the gen-3's.
