How firm is the mounting? I've seen some DIY brackets which were flimsy at best... Obviously, this will be better than that, but how good?

I would rather have some of the brackets done when I come out to the meet. IT's a long drive from Sacramento.

Great looking bracket but when you mentioned tow hook, does this require the removal of it? I understand sometimes the tow hook can be a pain to remove (i still haven't removed mine because of that).

This is how the bracket will bolt on. it's going to made out of steel. The bracket will be very strong.

Our design won't work without a tow hook but I will have my welder take a look and see if he can fab something up.

baby teeth tow hooks are cheap if not free. no one takes them out of the junkyards and most that have upgraded to real tow hooks have them laying around.

Those baby teeth are pretty hefty, it would be nice if it just mounted where the baby teeth did... not like the baby teeth can be used with that thing mounted there anyhow.

the baby teeth are also sturdy as hell and don't move. It'll be a balance between sturdyness and weight.

I'm sure you could make something effectively as strong as that setup by having the edges bent in, or by using a channel instead, especially since you'd be nixing a bolt.
