    I recently bough a used Curtis Hit and Run off a 05 GMC to put on my Chevy. The Chevy looks like it used to have a Fisher that was removed before I got it and the tow hooks are gone. The instructions for the Curtis mount say to leave the hooks in. Does anyone know if I can install the mount without the hooks?

    The hooks are still on mine... I believe they are only used for their original purpose, a tow hook. I don't see why you need them to install your plow, should be fine without them.

    I finally got through to Curtis on the phone. The guy explained that I should have the hooks because they serve as a wedge keeping the frame from flexing in. I found a set from a guy I know who took them off his 01 for a Fisher MM. Thanks for the help :)

    Yeah, the hooks work as a spacer with the Curtis mount. You could probably put in a stack of washers or a bushing to take up the space, but I'd definately take up the space!
