Recovery Hooks

Discussion in 'Chevy Trucks' started by NH-Dave, Jan 27, 2009.

  1. First time poster.
    Just recently I had a Fisher 8ft plow attached to my Chevy 2500HD.
    Doing so, you lose the recovery hooks in the front.
    Does any one know if there is something I can install in the snow plow mounting hardware to be able to use them during the off season?

    What year 2500hd do you have?

    I have a 04' 2500HD with a 8' HD Fisher set-up that I was able to use the tow hook assembly as the backer. I needed to get some longer metric bolts to attach the truckside mount to the frame. The bolts thread into the tow hook assembly. I takes a little wrestling with but can be done! To be safe I used plenty of loctite thread locker during final assembly. Its been on the truck for a year and no issues.

    Just get a shackle that fits through the push plate hole.

    I have seen people doing clevis/ shackles, what have you, but I was also told it is not recommended at all

    I did the same , think it stiffens the frame better , plus you have the hooks.

    Sounds like your installers got lazy, I would go back to them...
