    Looks great. I'm leaning toward the FRPP front hook as well. Did you find a decent short strap for the front ring? Most of the strong straps I find have steel D rings on the ends and they look too large to fit through the FRPP ring.

    I went with the ZL1 front and rear tow hooks. Use them to load in my Futura trailer and they work as advertised.

    I've looked at the instructions for both the FRPP front tow hook and the ZL1 center mount front tow hook, but don't see anything that requires either gets mounted in the center. Could either one of these be mounted offset to avoid the nose-ring look on the car? I realize ZL1 makes the bolt-on offset one, but I figured the install of the center-mount version would be stronger since you're drilling mounting holes, but could then do it off to the side of the crash beam.

    Any chance you could weight the stock rear support bar that came off to verify the weight reduction claims from Watson on that?

    I believe that the supplied hardware plus the slight curve of the bumper reinforcement that the hook bolts to will cause the hook assembly to be misaligned and exit at an angle instead of being aligned with the axis of the car.
