Default body lift tow hooks?

I am goin to be doing a 3" pa body lift on my truck soon. Does anyone know if the tow hooks are moved as well ?? Or am I gunna have to make my own??? Another thing I'm worried about is the hidden hitch.... its nice and tucked right under the bumper right now how bad is it going to look.? Anyone have pictures???

search in the how to for body lift tow hook mod. You can keep them but they will have to be modified to still work. or you can keep em in the stock spot but you will have to cut the bumper around them.

EDIT: here I went ahead and found it for you but try to search. It doesnt bother me but you will get alota people saying that lol. its always better to search first but I know how it can be a pain trying to find your answer. but here you go, http://www.fordrangerforum.com/how-s...body-lift.html

For the rear you will have to cut the hitch, lower the mounting points, then weld and bolt the mounting point back on.

EDIT: went back in my millions of archives of files and found one of the threads for it. look at the bottom posts by STL. Installed body lift - rear bumper question
