Tow hook

I am looking at adding a front tow hook on my 14 ZL1, I see there are quite a few companies that sell them.

Is it lots of drilling to install one?
Which is the hook most of you are getting?

Randy T ZL1 Addons has a decent tow hook kit. Put one on the front of my 13 ZL1 and was pretty easy. Go to their web site and take a look at the install instructions. Good luck with your project.

Same here. Used ZL1 Add On's tow hook for the front, and it was straight forward. Just had to drill one hole (well, pilot and full) behind the removable plastic cover on the passenger side of the bumper, and then bolt the tow hook receiver on.

Super easy to install. They include good instructions with a template on where to drill the hole. I didn't see any instructions on their site.
