Proven Wicked rear tow hook install

lots of cars have the front tow hooks installed, but very few have the rears installed. i figured it was mostly driven by the concern of cutting into the fascia.
i came up with a way to install it without cutting the fascia and thought i would share my method.

That works! Going through the body is always scary and this solves that

Good idea - thanks for posting!
Anyone can drive fast in a straight line, its what you can do thru the curves that matters!

'11 SS ordered from BeckyD in 3/11 and bought the '14 1LE from BeckyD in 10/13!

Old thread alert...

Great writeup! The Proven Wicked site says this rear hook is not for the ZL1. I can only imagine it's because of the way they recommend this gets installed, versus how this great writeup has you install it.

Does anyone have this hook on a ZL1? If not, I'll be the first. I just ordered it.
There are only so many days in your lifetime. So get out and drive your Camaro...
