I just received a response from Breanne which answered my question as to why my '08 has nothing but sheet metal behind the ~2"x2" plastic cover on my front bumper (the rear bumper 'knockout' has a female threaded connection for an recovery eye-bolt). The response was that it probably "was deleted for cost savings". So......priceless. My '08 SRX Sport with the really low valence is not able to be towed out of a stuck situation (without both trashing the front valence and digging under the front frame to hook up a tow chain) because Cadillac wanted to save 50 cents on a female threaded fitting behind the bumper.....give me a break! What were they thinking? You may want to check whats behind your 2"x2" bumper covers before your SRX gets stuck this winter.
