Does Aries Bull Bar for 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 Laramie Require Tow Hooks to Be Removed

Question:

05 ram 1500 4x4 Laramie. I want a bull bar but I want to keep my tow hooks also, can I do that with this? Or is there another option? It seems to be a 4 bolt single piece tow hook bar, hope you can help or recommend something, Thank you for your help.

The Aries Bull Bar with Removable Skid Plate # AA35-5006 you referenced does indeed require removal of the factory tow hooks (or single piece tow hook bar) on your 2005 Dodge Ram 1500. It uses the existing tow hook mounting points and factory hardware to attach the bull bar brackets. The same is true for all bull bar options for your truck.

That being said, Aries has a perfect solution for you with the Tow Hooks for Aries 3" and 4" Bull Bars # AA35-5TOW. These heavy duty tow hooks simply bolt on to your Aries Bull Bar and are perfect for recovery towing applications up to 10,000 lbs.

Question:

Are they usable on a ram 1500? or just the 2500/3500?

Yes, the Tow Hooks for Aries 3" and 4" Bull Bars # AA35-5TOW will work perfectly on your 2005 Ram 1500. I also confirmed this information with my contact at Aries.

The fits are based around the Bull Bars and the # AA35-5006 fits 2003-2005 Dodge Ram 1500 as well as the 2500 and 3500. For the newer model years (2006-2018), this fit excludes the 1500, which is why you're only seeing 2500/3500 in the description.
