    Personally for safety purposes I would use a D-Ring shackle vs a hook. It is more secure and you do not have to worry about your strap slipping off. But a hook IS better than nothing.

    So how is the weather down in Carcas Crispy? Been hot as blazes here in Dallas. Might be heading down your way in a month or so with the yaks for some fishing.

    I wonder if those mount so they fit through the holes on the skid plate? The OEM tow hook does.

    I prefer the hooks because my strap has loops on both ends. I like the one open and 1 closed on Tacoma's. My F150 had 2 closed and always wondered why. I put 2 similar hooks on rear of my '87 F150. Pulled out a Ford tractor that was buried. It took like 10 jerks and hooks held up fine. I bolted to frame with grade 5s. I had retain clips on mine.
