Can anyone who has installed front tow hooks on an '18 Sport tell me what is involved in putting them on? Do they require a portion of the plastic valence to be cut or a section of the lower grille insert to be modified? Seems like there isn't any place at all to attach a tow line without any hooks installed - but there really doesn't seem to be any provision in the grills or valence to accommodate adding some either.
Any info is much appreciated - Kevin..

The lower grill gets cut, or you just buy the version setup for tow hooks.

The lower plastic trim piece where your tow hooks will stick out, is not that expensive.
If it were me, i would just buy the trim with the holes already in it and be done with it.
I would also suggest that you buy the OEM tow hook kit. Whole kit installs in minutes.

Do you have a part number for the kit or trim that you are talking about? I already have the hooks and was planning on installing in the next couple of days using the eyeball and chop method.

If you have a SPORT, you`ll likely have to cut the original trim panel out. I`ve only found the trim panel for the steel bumber trucks. Easy to do the SPORT truck panel with a hole saw... holesaw out 2 holes for total width (each side), then use a carpet knife to finish connecting the 2 holes so your hooks clear.
