don't them by default having it mounted to the exterior as we get it.
I think that the yellow bits everywhere is overkill for production but having just some yellow or red tow hooks at the front would be a nice touch. Would give it just that little bit of utility/off-road character that it needs.

If not stock, I can add it myself.

Yup, tow hooks are the least of my concerns anyways.

Never cared for having them exposed, only when actually TOWING.

Only in favor of them being on cars that see the track often or cars that have a low ride height

Front tow hooks on trucks are usually used when offroading.

The tow hooks should obviously be usable, but I think that it also would be a nice design touch for the Santa Cruz.

even rear too, I think rear mounted hooks might be of even more importance when off-roading as it helps with being pulled out if you get stuck in that situation.

I just don't think that they should get rid of the tow hooks because they are so cheap. It's not like they would be a super expensive thing to produce and add into the vehicle, so they may as well keep them and keep as close to the concept as possible.

Its not that simple. To incorporate tow hooks they have to design the vehicle structure to handle tow hook use in that area. This isn't a ladder frame truck where that would be easy since all you have to do is bolt them to the ends of the frame. Then there's the design, sourcing, manufacturing, assembly... Every little bit helps in vehicle development when it comes to keeping costs in check.

I think the chances of this happening with a production model will be slim.
Plus won't mind using the usual undercarriage mounted hook for time when I really need a hook
