    There isn't any that I've ever seen... I had a Pre-Runner type light bar on the bumber of my Tahoe that had to be drilled...


    And I currently have a bull bar on mt Avalanche, and that uses the tow hook mounts on the frame, but the hookes have to be removed.


    And every brush guard (full or half) that I've ever seen states that you hvae to remove the tow hooks for installation...

    Hi, and welcome to the site! Good Luck with this! I don't think there is one, but there could be something new!

    Now that I think of it, most installation instructions suggest that you remove the tow hooks... If you take that plastic lip off of the bottom of the bumper and reverse the tow hooks it would work... As long as your bolts are long enough...
