Yes you have to take off the tow hooks to mount it but you put them back on at the end. I can send you a picture of my hitch on with the tow hooks connected.

I'm interested in seeing that. I just ordered the same torklift front receiver for my 2021 3500 6.4. I would like to keep the tow hooks too.

For use on roadways and highways? The main negative I can think is airbag deployment if there was an issue
What does airbag deployment have to do with a front hitch?

Not the hitch as much as the cargo carrier. Depending on where FCA puts the sensors it could interfere with the deployment.

Vehicle air bags sensors use accelerometers monitoring multiple axes to determine if a vehicle is in a collision. Even with a cargo carrier on the front of a vehicle, if the measured impact is enough to deploy the airbags they will. Airbags are not deployed based on how much a vehicle is crushed in an accident, if they did the airbags wouldn't inflate in time to keep you from getting hurt. Part of why they say not to snow plow with certain trucks is the airbag system can't discern between an accident and hitting an unknown object with the blade.
