I like it too - kind of wish it filled the space below the lights too -- but this was a custom job -- they can build to suit.

Checked out that web site and the rear bumper, I personally like the plain ones, have a question, I see thay talk about the receiver hitch, if I installed this, I take it I would have to remove my trailer hitch.
Also wonder if it in the same class, planning on pulling a military 3/4 ton restored painted to match trailer.
What type you planning on getting? looking forward to getting the info off you.

Yea the only reason I didnt get one was for when I tow the horses or mayb I should have so I dont have too,I didnt like the lights eather and I have some on my bed rack for that reason.

For me, our 23' travel trailer has a load equalizing hitch with sway control, and there just isn't a drop shank long enough.
I guess Im goin to have to find out, I rather be safe then sorry with 2 horses and everyone els on the road if the bumper decides to fail.
