I was in the same situation as you. On my previous 2003 RAM I had a really nice KC Light Bar which mounted my Off-Road Lights and retained my tow hooks. On my current 2011 RAM, I purchased a Smittybilt Street Light Bar from AutoAnything. Unfortunately, KC does not yet sell a Light Bar for the Gen. 4 1500 Rams.The Smittybilt Light Bar mounts to the 2 front License Plate holes and is actually quite sturdy. It can hold up to 4 lights and of course you can retain your tow hooks. It is shown in my signature photo. I have not yet found a Bull Bar that does not sacrifice the use of your tow hooks. Good luck!
