Tow hook.

Who here has tow hooks? Are they bolt on? Has anyone used them to come onto an enclosed trailer?

tow hook

I was looking for a tow hook set up also. I see ZL1 Addons has them for our cars but it seems that it only comes with 1 hook ? Is this the best vendor for tow hooks for our cars?

I've only seen them as a single red hook in the middle of the bumper under the passenger headlight.

Yup;

I have front and rear ZL1Addons installed. Good quality, good set of instructions come with them. The rear receiver is installed behind the license plate.

A few weeks ago I bought a front hook from ZL1 add ons. Good quality. Happy with it so far but then again I haven't had to use it. Like the saying goes, better to have and not need than need it and not have.
Make sure you have a good quality drill and drill bit.

Does it require welding?

I have the front and rear installed it took me a couple hours to do and the supplied templets were right on the mark and made it easy. As for strength they are plenty strong to winch on to the trailer I do it every time I go to the track.

No welding required just a drill and some hand tools

No there not the only one but most of the others are going to require removing the bumpers to weld on mounting points the hooks can screw into

We are partial to light weight and use nylon straps. We winch cars on trailers because it is an easy one man operation so we use them all the time.
