I would remove them or beef up how they are mounted, someone is going to hook up to them and get hurt...

Maybe hit them with a quick weld or something but the tow hooks are right above them

one of the things about this top that many don't know is that you never completely take it off. you can but it is a PITA because it is connected by wraps to the roll bar behind the speaker pods (2006) so to get it back on you have to loosen the pods. however the front of the bikini flips back so the only part covered is the rear seat area.
the one thing that i do not like about this top is storing the windows. the sides have a hard plastic 1/4 round structure at the rear rollbar to keep the shape. not sure if Rampage has this. so when you take windows/sides out you have a rather large bulky piece in the back. this summer i am going to take these "frames" out and see what it looks like.
Might just put them in during the winter

Modified a 3" front license plate mount to fit a 1.5" tube. Successfully. With all the wrong tools.

Put an awesome spare tire cover over my ugly (but free) spare. So awesome I'm afraid it will be stolen. Do people steal those?

Was that pretty easy to do? Been thinking about doing that to my TJ.

Rolled the windows down because it's NICE out. Also drove through a big mud puddle behind a strip mall just to get a little dirt on the fenders. Oh, and my Smitty compressor finally shipped from Amazon. Good things...

Hahaha that one cracked me up too.

What I did today- went to discount tire for rotation and rebalance...they didn't balance them right, they stripped a lug nut stud and all 4 tires had different psi ranging from 24-34 psi...

For advice, don't go to a discount that blares music. Only go there to get a good deal on tires, then LEAVE quickly

I'd say the tow hooks are about 4-6" inside of them...and the structure stops pretty much right at the towhooks. I just had my stock bumper off for a bedlining and hooks install last weekend. You'd need a really stout steel bracket to get those supported off the frame. Just make sure no one ever hooks to them, of they are right, someone will get hurt. Anyone trying to help in a recovery of your rig would go straight for the D-rings, and not the hooks (unless they realize the bumper is stock, then they might lave you there lol)
