Question Front towing hooks and bar.

Where do I begin looking for front towing hooks and/or mounting bar if I end up stuck in a bog, since I'm in a 2WD. How does one get pulled out from the front?

Check junkyards for 4x4 towhooks from the same style, or find a guy on here with a newer sport that swapped his hooks for FX4 hooks. The only thing I'm not sure about is if you have a cutout in your bumper for hooks.

would be pretty easy with your truck since it has the 4x4 frame. all you need is the drive train parts and some time. wouldn't be too expensive if you just want to keep the stock suspension and put the stock 4x4 components in.
