Default How to install Dodge factory tow hooks.

OK, so I picked up a pair of Dodge factory tow hooks at a local salvage yard for the awesome price of $42.90 including tax. But they were installed on an after market, massively huge plate steel bumper. So, that means I don't know how there were installed by the factory. So, my question is, can anyone give me some help on how to install these babies on my 08 1500 4X4.

I do know that they go between the top color cap and the bottom chrome part of the bumper and that I will have to trim the black fairing shorter on both ends. I do figure that I will have to remove the bumper too. But what I'm unsure of, is will they bolt up to the factory bumper mounts on my truck or will I have to do some fab work? Anyways, thank for any help.

Check'em out.

Wow those are monsters. I've not seen anything like that on late model Rams.

I dont think those will bolt on to a 1500.

The tow hooks that came on 02-08 1500's were part of a one piece bar that spanned across the front frame.

The OEM part number is 82209854

However, I'm sure that you can get them to work with some fabrication
