    I just wanted to know if anyone here is running tow hooks? I was at my ford dealer and they have tow hooks that supposedly fit the 06-10 Explorers. So I was wondering if anyone actually had em on.

    From what I heard they're not like yours. I think you have that one because that Ex was probably shipped over and that was a tie down point. Makes a good tow hook :D

    They are these:

    Should hook up to the frame right before the bumper. Question is, would the bumper (without the air dam) clear the hook.

    EDIT: Hmm....looking at your frame (the electrician) it doesnt have the same hook up points as my 3rd and 2nd gen does. Wonder why they would list that as an 06-10 part.

    I actually think your one tow hook up on the front cross member is ideal for an 06+. The front bumper is too low to actually make tow hooks useful and that one is in a great spot.
