Default installing a rod rack

I just got a Hamburger's 4 rod rack at a yard sale. Any suggestions on how to install it to the front bumper of an 05 trailblazer. The front end is mostly plastic and I really dont want to mess this one up

Generally the tow hook area is used for a cooler rack on Chevys.
I'm thinking a rod rack my be to narrow for that.
Your going to have to find the meat behind that plastic for a secure mounting point.

Jess is right. They use the tow hook positions for receivers. The Lukoil station in Seaside Park can do it for you or show you how to do it yourself.

also when installing rod racks, if your going to drive down the road with the rods in there make sure you mount it at a height where 1) the rod tip dosent exceeed 13' 6" above the ground (power lines and bridges are at least this height unless otherwise posted, but trees on residential roads may be lower), and 2) the rod butts arent too close to the ground to where you drag them in the uneven sand.
