The problem with the 12 13 is the back inner bumper is lower than the license plate and will not cover. The only real way is to use a plug. Also do the 12 and 13s have the front door in the grill to remove for tow hook? The tow hooks will fit but there will be holes to plug when not in use.

installed the kit tonight and it was easy. Driving home I feel much more at ease knowing I can be towed up on a flatbed now without issue...except maybe clearance...I might bring a few wood blocks too. With no spare and once already almost breaking down I dodged a bullet. Anyone with a z/28 this is a must have.

Thanks Skylane and I think GM owes YOU something.

Skylane, will you be around on the 9th and 10th of August? I'll be down at Fontana that weekend racing and would be able to drive down to SD to pick up a set if possible. Thanks, I would this week or next week but I'm out of town for the next little while.

I don't believe they will as I asked the same question earlier. I have a front installed but need a rear hook. I have been pulled out of the dirt before you need external hooks.

I know this is in the Z/28 section, but my '14 has the tow hook mount location on the front. I have been looking at these on Amazon, but wanted to know how to install it without taking off the bumper.

Also for some of us at shows, a bracket that screws into this receiver location for a front plate mount is a good idea also. Can use the tow hook for racing/towing and a different screw in bracket for the front plate driving to or from the track/show in states that require them. Just a thought.

I am interested in the one for the front though. If I don't have to remove the bumper to do it. Do you sell singles?

Thanks!

You DO NOT have to remove the front or rear fascia or (bumper) to install the front or rear tow hooks. The front receiver and grill door is to the right side and not in the front, would you want the plate to be to one side?

Plate to one side mounted to a tow hook receiver since it already has the space would be nice to sve putting holes in the grill or facia. May not be for everyone though. Just some thought.

Hey John,

So when I order for my '14 ZL1 it will come with the plug I need? If so I'll get an order in ASAP and will I still be in your system from when I ordered the jack pads? It's not working with my email in the log in.

We made a new website, so you will not be in there. You can just email your order and yes it comes with 2 plugs one extra if you need it. We also have oversize plugs if you do need them. You are in Canada! The postage is $10 extra.
