Your front tow hooks are designed as you're pulling points along with the dual rear red hooks.
I removed both my rear hooks due to an AEV tire carrier and the Magnaflow exhaust. I now use a 2" hitch built for a shackle in the tow receiver.
Also, I need to shackle with the pin through the front tow hooks too ... with my Maximus-3 hoop, that's the only way to tie into the them.
I've used all 3 with no issues at all.
