i was trying to find better pics of these BP expys we upfitted last year. we installed light force lights on a bracket right above the factory tow hooks. you cant really see hooks but they are there. the factory ones sit farther back in then your f-150 ones.
here was another BP expy which shows them alittle better.

01 Explorer XLT Sport V8 AWD

91 F-250 lairat 4x4 5.0, 7'6" BOSS snow plow, Back Rack, Strobes, Work lights
I agree that the EXPY tow hooks don't stick out as far. I've used mine before, and was glad to have them. My last vehicle didn't have them and I wish it did when I needed them. I keep 2 recovery straps+wooden dowels, 3 clevises, and rear reciever tow bracket (along with other emergency supplies) in the rear storage compartments of my EXPY EL.
As far as front tow hooks/recovery hooks/eye its usually a 4wd thing. Although I agree with Chuck S that they should be called "eyes", I looked at my Window sticker and it says "FR TOW HOOKS/FOG LAMPS"
Most Fords and GM's have them on 4wds and not on the 2wd. Many times I've been talking to someone by their truck and noticed the recovery hooks and said, "Four Wheel Drive?" and they'll say something like "How'd you know?", and I'll say "You have recovery hooks in the front", and usually the response will be, "I didn't know I had those!"
