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.

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.
