Haven't even bent the frame a lil yet and got pulled out of mud holes/ being hung up on rocks. I'll do something different of it bends.

And just went to autozone bought the lights and used self taping screws and grounded it.

I did the same budget hooks when I couldn't source the OEM ones, to be honest this route gives you way stronger hooks (rated to 10,000lb vs the OEM 6,000lb). However, to protect the unibody we added some agle brackets inside the unibody rails so when we bolted it all togeather the stress was spread across multiple points on two planes of the rail. Much more robust than that weird OEM setup tripod thingy.

Apart from that, while my friend was helping me with this he also made some risers to lower the hooks out of the way of the facia, bring them forward somewhat, and add a little angle to them. The end result is that I slightly scrape those hooks on steep inclines before causing any real damage to the facia or radiator support.

This should give you an idea of the risers that I'm trying to describe:


Note: Next time the facia is off, I'll take some pictures of what I did on the inside of the rails.

Another option if you want them right away and are willing to spend a bit more is Rusty's off road, they have a very similar to stock design for 75 dollars. Saguaro4x4 ones are super nice looking but very expensive at about 175 dollars.

I wouldn't go without the tapping plates, they are used for a reason. Give enought hard pulls and those bolts will eventually Rip out of the thin sheet metal. I have the saguaro shackles and even though they said you don't need tapping plates with them I chose to use them anyway for added strength. if you can't get ahold of some tapping plates I would look into maybe fabing up some 1/4'' plates to use just to be safe.
