I have a 97 2wd ranger. There has been a time or two where i have gotten stuck and needed a tow out, but it was hard to find anything to hook up to to pull me out. Is there a way to put front tow hooks on my truck? i dont see anywhere to bolt them up to. I would like to do this because i can get a two hooks from a ranger at the junk yard for only a few bucks. thanks for the help.

I have a 3" BL and all I did was make a custom front hitch reciever that I bolted right to the frame and welded D-rings onto.
