OBS Tow hooks/fog lights

Hey guys, I am looking to add some tow hooks and maybe fogs if I get to feeling ambitious. Not sure why ford didn't put tow hooks on from the factory I would like to see some pics/tips of how you guys have mounted tow hooks on your OBS.

I was gonna make my own set too but figured this would be the easier and quicker route to go...if I was home at the shop I would pry fab something up but the way things are looking I'll be spending my summer 750 miles from there in Kansas

97-03 f150/expedition tow hooks. They are beefier than my frame.

^ I think I like this idea pretty good. Any cons with this?
Nevermind, I read the whole thread about this.

Only con is pulling from a tow hook can cause the frame to bend.one of the tow hooks is a tad lower because I must of tweaked the frame when I buried the truck in mud and was pulled out. IMO the safest way is to use something that bolts onto both frame rails such as a custom bumper or hitch.
