Those would be factory. Probably no longer available from the dealer but they should be plentiful in yards.

It’s been a long time since I’ve been rooting around a JY but do remember seeing a lot of trailblazers last visit. I’ll have to take a look for some hooks and observe how they are attached.



If the 97xs fog lights are in the same location as the TBs hook holes it mite be doable (having second thought's on hacking a big hole in the bumper) however I’m finding almost everything on the 97x is oddball to other gtm360s.



What I really need is a new hood mine is being held together w/ fiberglass and screws w/ plate underneath looks real ghetto.

Sometimes people sell them on offroadtb when theyu get a bumper. Might ask @Bartonmd if he knows of anyone that may have a set.
