Tow Hooks On your SSS

A couple of weeks ago I was under the front of my SSS and noticed there are 2 factory tow hooks bolted to the frame behind the front bumper :confused: . WTF? I dont know what purpose they serve because you cannot use them because you would tear the bumper cover all to hell if you tried to use them. Is my truck an oddball or does anyone else have them to? :dunno:

Well im glad im not the only one with the hooks. ...

Silverado SS trucks are not completely finished when they roll off the GM assembly line (contrary to the other GM ext cab trucks) - they are sent to Techstar for final fitting of exterior body cladding. When Techstar receives the truck it is a fully outfitted Silverado, and all Silverados come with recovery hooks. It was just cheaper (labor) to leave the hooks alone when installing the front bumper cover.

We used them on Matt's truck. They work very well if you remove the lower grille.
