Cam,

Sounds good. The sale is a limited time, but the bumpers won't be going anywhere, this is a standard item for us now.

I also replied to your PM before seeing this post was from you.

Adam,
I got the goods and installed it yesterday. The fit and finish is perfect. This bumper is so badass. I love how much clearance is added to the rear.

Anybody know what the trick is to accessing the receiver pin on these hitches? My fingers aren't nearly that small...

I reused the metal mounts to reattach the rear panel back to the frame. It turned out well. I bent a 90* at one side and cut the other side. Drilling a hole with a step bit through the body and bed liner compartment did the trick.


Original bracket location



New mounting point

It's impossible. I am getting a drop down hitch with a 1 1/2" longer shank and drilling a new hole farther back on the receiver. I'll post some pics.

I cut 3" off either side of the spare tire access hole, still a pain but I have access.

I did something similar with the fender brace but used the stock mount holes on the bedside and drilled a new hole in the fender.

Can you post a pic of your access holes you added?

I was able to get in and get a hitch pin in and out. It isn't as easy as a normal hitch, but this isn't a normal hitch bumper. You want high clearance and a hitch that is the sacrifice that must be made.

There was no way my hands could fit in there. I got stopped at the knuckles every time and I don't have big hands.
