If you get stuck, usually the best way to get unstuck, is going out the way you went in. This means you want a proper recovery point on the rear of your truck. This is why we designed this simple to install, and very functional product for your RAM 1500. As an added bonus, this kit gives off those TRX vibes.
How It works
This kit lets you install the Factory OEM Front Tow Hooks on the Rear of your 5th Generation RAM 1500 and Rebel truck. These factory Mopar tow hooks (sold separately) are readily available and affordable. This kit bolts directly to your OEM hitch receiver.
If you upgrade your front bumper to one of ours, you'll have these tow hooks left over, so you will only need our bracket kit. Otherwise here are the part numbers for the tow hooks you can order online, or from your RAM dealer.
Black Tow Hooks:
Left Tow Hook - 68272945AB
Right Tow Hook - 68272944AB
Chrome Tow Hooks:
Left Tow Hook - 68288777AA
Right Tow Hook - 68288776AA
This mounting kit includes two heavy duty formed steel adapter brackets, and all the high grade hardware you will need to attach the OEM tow Hooks. Our CNC Cut and formed steel brackets are powdercoated the same black as the RAM tow hooks for a strong, stealthy and factory look.

These brackets are a great solution for mounting up some rear tow hooks! The installation instructions were a bit lacking though. I read them on the website before receiving my brackets to know what I was getting into. It looked pretty straight forward and easy. During installation I noticed my ‘22 Bighorn had two alignment pins that were tack welded into place that the bumper sat on. One of the brackets I received (passenger side) had a hole cut out to accommodate the head of this pin. Unfortunately, I started on the drivers side where the bracket did not have the hole to accommodate this. I had to cut slit between the head of this pin and the bumper bracket so I could get a pry bar in there and pop this pin out. Once I started on the drivers side I just went ahead and did the same thing only to later realize there was a hole in the bracket to accommodate the head of this pin. I also wish the bolts were about a half inch to one inch longer. The bolts that mount the tow hook through the rear of the tow hook we barely long enough with the rubber piece that comes installed in the tow hook. All in all I am happy with the look!
Unfortunately this was not able to work on my truck due to the exhaust tips Borla uses. Vice Designs went out of their way to make it right and offered to ship another product for similar price for free and didnt ask for the rear hook brackets back
