Question Getting off those factory towhooks?

Hi, I'm new to this web communication thing, but have a question: Is there a trick to removing the factory towhooks on my 2001 F250 SD (so I can replace with nice chrome models)? Have tried to loosen the 3 nuts on each (visable from front above bumber), but they won't budge. Do I need to use a bigger "hammer?" Have hesitated so as not to hurt something in the name of just adding some more bling. Experienced advise most welcome please.

Welcome to the site , and yes, those three bolts are all that should be holding them on, but paint, and rust can cause them to not come off easily. there is really nothing to damage there as long as they dont hit the bumper hole they go through.....so just give them a good wack.......Marc

Wink Re: Factory Tow Hooks Removal

To All, thanks for your speedy response to my question. I'm ready to battle with those tough tow hook nuts this weekend. Now I know I'm not missing something important that I'll regret later.

Glad I found the Forum. I'm very impressed with the friendly and helpful conversations I see here. Some of you really know a lot and are willing to share it with beginners like me. This really helps one to feel at home. With gratitude, Denver
