    I mounted mine in an already existing hole on my frame in the front and then drilled another in the frame(my hooks had 2 holes). I have a few pictures on my cardomain site so maybe you can get an idea of where I mounted them.

    I am having places made to mount mine. I am going to mount the plates through existing holes in the frame. I'll let you know how it turns out.

    On my 94 I ALSO USED THE ONE EXISTING HOLE AND DRILLED A NEW SECOND HOLE. THE HARDEST PART WAS HOLDING THE NUT INSIDE WHILE TIGHTENING BOLTS DUE THE BOXED FRAME> ALSO I CUT OUT TWO RECTANGULAR HOLES IN THE STOCK AIR DAM (UNDER BUMPER) TO MAKE THEM EASY TO GET TO I'LL SEE IF I CAN POST PICS TO SHOW YOU. LOOKS REALLY GOOD!! :thumbsup:

    Please do not post in all caps.



    If you search there are a few threads on here with detailed descriptions of how they mounted the front tow hooks.

    The main problem I faced was that the frame is boxed requiring some long bolts or crafty wiggling of a nut inside the frame.
    I mounted a front receiver and have loved it.

    It also made it really easy to guide a fiends trailer into the garage.
