Tow Hook Installed

Not sure if anyone else out there has contemplated doing this, but the first time my car died at Road Atlanta, and I had to wait for the flat bed, was the last time. Problem would have been solved with a tow hook. Either way, here are the install pictures. Tow Hook comes from ZL1addons.com

Once installed, removal is easy and only the keen observer would notice any difference in the lower grill.

Had my little helper with me too!

Yes, they do! Although, here in Michigan, no front plate is required.

Do you have any pictures of what it's attached to underneath?

Awesome little helper. Enjoy every day!

I'd love to have my helpers that little once again but they are all grown up now.

As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everyone is
impossible- but pissing everyone off, is a piece of cake.

I am also curious where it attaches to? Also, what caused the car to die?

I don't understand. Do we have a tow hook female where this screws into and then that stick can adapt to either hook or license plate?

It's a female receiver that gets bolted onto the bottom of the crash bar. The Tow Hook has the male bolt that goes into the receiver. They also make a license plate bracket.

The car died due to a malfunctioning fuel supply. I.E., the driver failed to supply enough fuel to the vehicle. :wink:

Yes. The female will stay behind the grille where you can either attach a tow hook or the license plate bracket.
