oh :oops: from the movie CARS
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming to the Lord,
"Wow, What a ride!"

Ok i got the hooks on had to JB weld the cable into the hooks. I tried to use lead but that didnt work so it was time to mix the jb up and get it done. and to tell you it wasnt eazy to hook them up because i was a little short on the cable and i had to force it on the d-rings good thing my wife was home to help me. and its not going anywhere so i wont be useing it to pull things with :( but im happy with it. now own with the show.
