Installing factory tow hooks

2836 Views 8 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  pismo61
I just bought some factory tow hooks off of ebay and last night I was looking at the instructions (for the front tow hooks) which tell you to take the bumper completely off to install them. Is there any way to put them on without taking the bumper off?

PITA, no kidding, I think that I invented a few new cuss words. Please tell me that the rear tow hook is not as bad.
LOL. Matt, The rear Tow hook should be a 10 min thing. Really easy. I will try to call you tomorrow about the other things. BTW, How did you like all the little spacer shims and stuff that you have to get in there?????:rofl: Sorry for jokin, but I have been there and have felt your pain.

Front bumper has to be removed so tow hooks can be mounted to the frame. Bumper nuts are 18 mm. Be sure to disconnect the wire that's in a plastic flex conduit that's secured to back of the bumper before you try to remove the bumper. Also, do yourself a favor and put anti-seize on the 8 bumper studs before you put nuts back on.
