I want to put some tow hooks on the front of my 89F250. I was just going to bolt them on to the bottom of the frame as ive done on all my friends trucks. But the leafs run directly below the frame and the shackles and everything is in the way. Just woundering if anyone had any sugestions? I thought of putting it on the side of the frame but i dont like that much. I considered making a plate that runns between the frame rails and then bloting the hooks just in from the frame to clear the leafs. What are your thoughts? thanks

whatever you do just get a place to pull your ass out
front and rear

the plate between rails would be best[5]

hmm, ill have to see, ive got some 3\4 angle still. I might be able to do someting fancy with that. I like to build beef, i even used the 3\4 angle when i built the mounts for my 2 spotlights above my bummper.
