Two of these

and a screw pin shackle of suitable rating should give you what you want.

Just make sure that the length of the bridle 'legs' is at least twice the length of the distance between the two tow hooks. If it is not, there will be an inward component to the pull that will not be well received by the frame rails...

Yes, 8' straps might be better, depending on that distance.
