I have a pair of oem red tow hooks coming from a member today. I have the bumper off and see I need to make clearance for the hook side bolts. How is everyone doing this? Is that part of the bumper solid or hollow?

That stock plastic bumper is very much hollow. Just have to notch it out. A dremel or maybe a cutting wheel will do the job. I assume your frame has the holes to accept it already.

Just finished and no notching or trimming needed. Everything went perfectly.

Cool. I didn't ask which stock bumper you had. The sahara style or the black plastic.

Mine is a Willys so I don't know if willys and sport bumpers are the same or not but while that bottom bolt is tight, it needed no modding. Thanks for the info.

The Sahara bumpers are the same plastic bumpers as the others, they just have a center overlay.
