Tow hooks, bumper/winch

As you can see from the attached picture my new truck caught a 4 door civic in the front end. The airborne car flew into the truck as I was stopped at a stop sign and as you can imagine it ended up worse off than me. Fortunately, nobody got hurt.

Does anyone have suggestions for different tow hooks when I get these replaced. The stock ones don't stick out far enough to get a change on them without messing up your bumper. Also, how about bumpers? Isn't there one with a slot for a winch cable? (I think from a power wagon).

Oops, I meant you can't get chains around the tow hooks (not change around the tow hooks).
