I am not sure, but, i believe the tow hooks are a dealership install item

I have not seen any vehicles that are on the transporters with hooks

Thanks for doing the home work for me! Looks Good.
It is a factory option. I work for a company based in MI that receives Rams form Warren Truck Assembly and a large percentage are ordered and fitted with the protection package installed from the factory. I'm in MI this week and hoping I can back to Jersey Friday night, I hear they are forecasting more snow there............

They're part of the "Protection Group" option I actually got something you didn't.

* Front suspension skid plate
* Tow Hooks
* Transfer case skid plate

LOL thanks... I have been trying to look on the ram site and "build your own" but the website has been giving me issues
I guess it makes sense... also I guess they figure how much protection do you need in and around NYC.
Though I have seen some pot holes that you can get lost in and a front skid plate might help!

Man, I wish mine came with some skid plates and tow hooks. I think I got riped off!

Anyways, truck looks good. I think I will have to order me a set and do the install. Did you have to take the front cover off or just cut through it?

Correct! On the window sticker of my 2011 the protection group includes tow hooks, transfer case skid plate shield and the front suspension skid plate shield. $150 factory option which in my opinion should be standard on a 4x4.
