Good idea.
You don't want the tow hook to move if being towed.

Well, after a couple of emails with pictures to ZL1, it's confirmed. I'll be redoing the install this weekend. **Insert extremely long string of random cuss words here**

I knew that went too easy.

Let me go back up and modify this post real quick.

do you have to worry about it flapping and beating up anything? lip splitter, bumper, anything? how much was it
These have a tow ring that does move but you can tighten it enough so it stays put. It has some rubber/plastic bushings that help keep it where you want it but will allow you to move it with enough force.

I am thinking about grabbing one, in black, but dont want to look corny being on my car that isn't tracked Lol but if I need a tow.. well, ya know. so mainly aesthetic reasoning, with some functionality that I will prob never need.

I was waiting for something like this. Makes me wonder now if I need to take it all apart and redo it. The only thing is, if I do, the mounting bracket will be even closer to the grill, and it's almost touching it right now. *Insert string of random cuss words here*. Really makes me wonder if I did it right or wrong now. *Insert second string of random cuss words here*
The Feather Lite version instructions didn't mention this. Even the poor pic that comes with the instructions shows it just going over the bolts once the nuts have been pulled. Mine has some counter sunk slots on the side of the bracket that touches the bumper and goes over the two washers/spacers that were under the nuts.

I keep my hook in the trunk until needed.

Mine has the same counter sunk slots. When I get back up under there I'll try and get a better picture of what it looks like.

I made it out of .093 Kydex cut to 7.5 x 1.5 inches. Then I used a heat gun to soften it and formed it to the hook.

Did they happen to give you instructions on how to mount it? Got my kit and just got the hardware, with like 5 or 6 washers just hanging out in the box.
