suburban tow hooks

So at the endo of the month I am going offroading and the place that I am going to requires at least 1 tow point, well my jeep does not have any so I went to a local scrap yard and they have several suburbans there with the tow hook that are in good condition, I want to put 2 in the front and then 2 in back, here are my questions
1: has anyone tried this before
2: where should I mount them in the back
Thanks

1: I haven't tried this before

2: Take a look at aftermarket bumpers and see where they are located and have them welded on. Or use the square tube receiver if you have one.

Harborfrieght/OEM tow hooks up front with grade 8 bolts haven't lead to any complaints. In the back there's an OEM hook that ties into the frame you could get (I believe?) or head over to one of the vendors and get one that will fit into your 2 inch receiver.

If I can find my stock front hooks you could have them for whatever they take to get to you.
