There is a factory OEM bracket that has to be welded to the front cross member. Yes you have to remove the bumper but this is the only GM engineered solution and you don't have to cut any holes in the bumper or grill and the hook screws in and out.
The other aftermarket ones look like kinda of an after thought to me and I question their strength and practical use. The GM hook is forged steel and looks 4x the thickness of the popular aftermarket ones. The reciever bracket welded to the front cross member is steel for all C6's except the Z06/ZR1 that are aluminum billet for the aluminum frame.
