front



bottom


the hole on the bottom that lines up with the hole in the first picture is where the tow hooks are attached

so unfortunately you do not have tow hook holes....the good thing about that is that now you can fashion your own and not necesscarily have to use ford hooks...

That is because a 2wd edge is on a 4wd edge frame

my 04 2wd edge does not have the hooks or the mounting holes. there is slotted hole in the cross member, but as the photo earlier shows this is not where they mount. would it be best to remove the front bumper to install? if so, what is that process?

My 2005 edge has the holes. You can remove the bumper to make it easier.

There are 4 bolts that hold the bumper on. 2 on each side.

i just spent all afternoon installing my tow rings. boy, what a pain. make sure you have a 9/16" drill bit, 1/2" doen't give enough slop for aligning the screws up with the nuts in the rings. taking the bumper off was the easiest part, reinstallation of the bumper takes a little adjusting but not bad. its all done now, looks good if i say so my self.
