I was just wondering if any of you guys out there fabricated up some tow hooks for the front of the 93-97 trucks. As far as I know, there were none offered factory, and it would be really nice to have some. If anyone could shed some light on how they did it or any ideas on how to, it would great.

I haven't seen anyone run a set with stock bumpers, but they would definitely be nice!

All the ones I've seen have been part of aftermarket replacement steel bumpers. The kind that have a winch mount.

I though about putting in a front hitch that works with the factory bumper, but I don't really have that much time to fab something like that up, and I don't have a welder when I am at school. And I am not going to drop big bucks on a aftermarket front bumper for a stock truck that doesn't need a 300 pound bumper on the front of it. It would be sweet, but I am too cheap for something like that.

Yeah, I hear ya on the aftermarket front bumpers. They aren't too expensive if you have the tools to make your own, but if you dont, they cost WAY too much...
