2005 tow hook install


It is required that all vehicles have at least two (2) easily accessible (and usable) tow points; one (1) in front and one (1) in back. After-market tow hooks or tow straps are mandatory. If tow hooks/eyes are used they must not protrude dangerously or more than one (1) inch beyond the bumper
supports from the vehicle or require manipulation of the bodywork and/or panels to access the tow eyes. All apparatus, no matter which type is used, must be strong enough to support the weight of the vehicle. If tow eyes or tow points are not available the towing crew will hook onto other things that may cause damage to the competitor’s vehicle. The tow crew will not be held liable for any damage. All hidden straps should be labeled with a ‘TOW’decal for easy location by track personnel.


has anyone ever done anything like this id appreciate pics and or advise

As long as it is attached to a frame rail and doesn't protrude too far I think you could just weld in a loop. Personally I would go with tow straps.

I run the FRPP one on a custom bracket for my Roush bumper:



Bought it from a guy on FnSweet who custom welds the bracket I required.
