Default Metal on the front?

Hi Guys and Gals, I was cleaning all the wonderful bugs off the front of my white Nox yesterday (LOL) and noticed this contraption on the front with two holes. I see two toe hooks as well which I like incase I will ever need a roll back tow. But these two holes have me confused and thought I would check here first to see if you all knew what this thing is? I thought maybe it was either a brush guard attachment or something to tow with like behind an RV?


Thanks Jon

Did you buy your Equinox used?

My first guess would be an attachment that would allow you to pull it behind a RV. I don't think that there are many accessories that would allow you to put some type of brush guard on the front.

Is it connected to the frame? If it is I'm going to say it's for towing as well. If not, who knows?

I will get under it and check with my back heals. Got 7 cortizone shots today so it might be a few days. lol. I would love to find the original owner (the dealership wouldnt tell me) and find out.

Those are for tow bars. Most likely your vehicle was towed behind an RV... YOU GOT A TOAD! lol. (nickname for vehicles towed behind RV's)

I know you've got enough people telling, but yep, it's for tow bars. Still not such a bad thing to have just in case.
