    Hey everyone :hattip:

    I was wondering if anybody knew the bolt size for the tow hook.
    My Truck is a 2016 Toyota tundra. I would want to remove them to paint them red, but I just want to know the size of the bolt to remove it. I dont have the rights tools so i would have to ask my cousin to borrow it from the shop, so if anybody knows the size please let me know :)

    Thank you, I will see when I get home.

    I was just confused because it had a number 11 engraved on the bolt

    I think the Plastidip might peel off if you use the hook

    I used the Dupli-Color Super Red II. It is a good match to the color of the trd sway bar.

    Looking to do the same this weekend. I picked up a cheap can of rustoleum paint and primer. Are you guys scuffing the surface to help with paint adhesion or just wiping it clean and doing the primer/ paint?

    That looks great, do you remember what color (name, code, etc) of powder they used? Or how much it costs? I was hoping to do this one on the cheap. Too much money going out for other mods at the moment!

    Search "red tow hooks" in another post, I mentioned the powder coat color code that my local shop used, can't remember off the top of my head, it's a spot on match for the TRD red. Cost was $40 if I recall.
