Going to add tow hooks to my high country and need to relocate ACC

Unless GM has developed a recovery hook specific for the LS/LT/High Country bumper cover then you are going to find the recovery hook for the 1500 series truck and Z71 trim package tahoe/suburban doesn’t stick out of the facia far enough to be used without damaging the bumper cover.

I found this out the hard way. The drivers side of my high country has a little removable panel, that’s even named something like recovery point cover and a recovery hook from a Z71 series suburban bolts up correctly, it’s just not long enough. To work properly the recovery hook needs to be 4 inches or so longer than what is used on the Z71 suburban/tahoe and the 1500 series trucks.

Great info, thanks!

If I can’t find longer tow hooks I’ll look into having something fabricated. I’ll let you know if I have any luck.
