good place for tow hooks

I just got my tow hooks in, problem is: where to mount them? I have the smittybilt double tube bumper up front. Just checking to see where other people have theirs before I find a place. Seems like anywhere I go those damn tubes will get in the way. I also plan on mounting a hilift jack on the front too. Maybe I should get a new bumper, possibly winch ready???

Had that same problem long ago when I ran tube bumpers. I had a friend machine a block with two holes to lift the hooks up high enough to clear the tube bumper. The hooks must be mounted on the frame to be of any use. The bolt holes are already there. Same holes you used to mount the front bumper. There's two more for the rear of the hook already there too.

man, osburn again!! you ever sleep? lol Someday I will have the experience you do. Give me a few more years and lots of money

I'm gonna have trouble with that tube, its the one with the loop and its right in front of the frame. Unless I mount them on the sides of the frame. They will just have to be sideways. I don't think that will affect anything.

Yeah, I sleep. But I'm dreaming about Jeeps when I do.

Ah, I know zactly what you're talking about. Honestly, it would be less trouble to trade bumpers with someone or sell it. The tow hooks are more valuable than the bumper in my opinion. But, hahaha, get this, one of my buddies, cut the loop off the front, then used the spacers like mine to mount the tow hooks. It actually turned out nice.
