Hey, for my tow hooks I had to cut the hooks and re-weld them to a new base plate to get them to bolt up properly... I thought it looked better than cutting the valance and they are still fully functional!
Yeah I still have the tow-hooks. I didnot have to remove them because my grille guard bolts through an existing hole in the frame and the bumper mount itself. I recently installed a body lift so my mounts and my valance are modified now. I got my guard off of ebay, not sure what brand it was, It was $250.00 brand new
