    For those of you with western plows and a 3rd Gen Dodge Ram you know that you had to take off your front tow hooks to install the plow.

    Had anyone found a way to reinstall them over top of the plow mount?

    I took a quick look and it seems as if I might be able to squeeze them over top of the tow mounts if I got longer bolts. But I could be wrong.

    Any suggestions?

    I hope it's not too late in the season, there must be a few lurkers left :p

    Wow, good thing you posted this, I am about to buy Tow Hooks and my mounts for my Western plow are on. I'll check on this tomorrow, didn't think the plow mounts could get in the way of the tow hooks? I know a guy with tow hooks and a Fisher XBlade setup on his 2500, figured his mounts couldnt be too differently mounted then how mine is.

    What kind of mount do you have?

    Western Ultra (the newest one)

    The dealer installed it and removed the tow hooks. But I find them handy to have. I will line them up later and let you know.
