    A little father and son project

    The truck came without front tow hooks (thank you Chevrolet for saving a few bucks in your pocket).
    Instead of buying a set of tow hooks I decided to install a front tow hitch that I conveniently found on Craigslist. The tow hooks would have required removing the grill, headlights and bumper, the hitch required only fishing the bolts and washers through the frame.
    A couple of hours under the truck and voila 9,000 straight pull rated. A little air dam trimming and it's in.

    Nice. I have the same Harbor Freight insert. I put a bigger shackle on it though. Comes in handy a lot more than you would think.

      For $10 I won't complain. I installed the hitch because next year I want to get a beach fishing permit and if I get stuck I don't want to hook the tow rope to the frame.
      In the fall I'm going to do a very mild lift, like 2 or 3 inch front and back, and install a set of 'hybrid' tires like Cooper Discoverer A/T3.

    It's good that you have the hitch mount if you are going to go fishing. Look into the hitch mount cooler/ fishing rod holders. It's all aluminum but pretty pricey.
