Default Adding Front Tow Hooks - What will it take?

My '09 Ram didn't come with front tow hooks. I looked over the situation when I changed my oil, it doesn't look that bad.

It looks like If I can swap the part of the bumper the tow hooks stick through for one with the slots for tow hooks, the tow hooks should bolt right up.

But I dont know if I am missing something. Has anyone done this yet? Am I missing any other parts under there?

Tow hooks come on 2500 and 3500 size trucks. I'm sure you can get some aftermarket ones. With a little drill and plates you be good to go.

they r an option on all models except for the sport... i ordered the sport and wanted to do the same... i can only guess that the holes r in the frame... just gotta get the tow hooks and bolt them on... plus u already have the holes for it... so i can't see y it wouldn't just take tow hooks and some bolts and thats it...

i will prolly have to cut the plastic thing that covers the holes where the tow hooks would go... not as easy for me...
