Tow Hooks Recommendations?

I have the CoolTech and while the color matched my red at first, it has now faded to orange. Not good.
Either a rattle can or a good powder coater can fix that right up. BTW same here. ;)

Ya, I have thought the same although that sounds like work :( It wound have to be the powder coated as the front hook gets used periodically to winch on to my trailer.
 
I have th Cooltech hooks, front and back. It's very tough. I've already used it to drag my Boss out of a tight spot. Also, someone unscrewed the horshoe and stole it one day, in a parking lot. I called the Cooltech people and they sent me a new one for free.

How many are running the 302s front and rear tubular bumpers with the hook mounts on them? That looks like the way to go. The tubular front bumper also makes it possible to enclose the radiator/oil cooler for better temp management.
I have both tubular bumper tow hooks on my boss. Front is the FRPP 302S tubular with integrated splitter mounts. Rear is Watson racing's tubular tow hook bar. Both great products and, unfortunately have had to use both and they worked flawlessly!

I thought Watson has block-off plates that *only* work with the tubular bumper?
