URGENT HELP

I'm in a huge situation. Where is the towing hook on the front of my 04 v6?

Use the frame to pull it. Don't do the bumper. If it's being pulled like on a tow truck you could use the axle, but it depends on the situation imo.

MM is awful. Don't ever come here if you haven't been sucked in already!

It's stuck in a ditch (dont ask now) and we can't get it out. The 1 wheel that spins is suspended in mid air. Basically it went over a culvert and is stuck

Yeah control arms is about the only spot you can loop a tow strap around.

DO NOT use the bumper support.

Source: I had to tow mine 2 miles like that last week.

just make sure you are on the control arm and its on there good so it wont slip off and cause more damage, and if possible make sure the strap doesnt push on the bumper and such once tension is put on it.

My front bumper is broken already so if it pulls off I'll be pissed, but oh well

I'm already buying a new one. So the lca is that little ring looking thing behind the axle or whatever that bar is?

Dude! I saw a hook on DiMora's car in a pic on here so I thought maybe New Edge's had one?

Keep on the strap off the plastic if possible and turn the wheels while being pulled. Good luck buddy
