What tow hook should I get ? Blowfish or ZL 1 Addons ? After my breakdown last Wednesday night and held up our session waiting for tow truck I need to put one on

I have a 2017 GT PP 6 spd and went with Blowfish Racing. I posted pictures in my thread “S550 HPDE Prep - Need advice”. Pics and discussion in page 4. Sorry, I don’t know how to link directly to it.

I haven’t had to use the tow hook yet, but I think it looks good and seems to be well made. Note: I do plan to add a tow hook of some sort to the rear of the car. You might cringe at this, but I’m considering installing a hitch receiver and just inserting a tow ring in that. Everything else I’ve looked at requires some type of change to the bumper cover or reverse light that I don’t want to make.

Good luck with it.

I had the ZL1 front tow hook and unfortunately I can confirm it works fine. I like the way Steve @Blowfish designed his tow hooks but he never made one for a GT350 so I went with the ZL1 instead.
Yeah I also saw that the Blowfish one can't be used with the 350's. Is it simply the size and shape of the crash beam? Could the bracket be modified, or do we know if they're planning on releasing a GT350/R specific one?

I'm going to be installing this one this weekend. Anything in particular I should look out for?
I did mine by myself. One other person would be a big help. The ZL1 seems to be an easy install. Google the install, seems to be some good videos. Good luck

Be very careful with the side clips where the bumper mates up with the fender. They break and then the two pieces won't match up smoothly. Also the bolt that keeps the two pieces together is a PITA. Small hands with a small 1/4" drive ratchet are the ticket there. Just be patient with everything and keep the two million little plastic pins in a container. I recommend completely removing the inner fender liners. It will be much easier in the long run.

My car is dual purpose and when I removed them I got to clean out all the little pebbles that were there. You still put them back on.
