After trading in my old ranger on a new taco I no longer have a way to pull my trailer.
The trailer is a cheap little Tractor Supply 4x7 trailer with 12" wheels. Net wt 350lb + planks in the wheel tracks so about 500lb total. I only carry a yard tractor of about 500lb.
I would like to install this myself and for low cost. Will the bumper really hold 3500lb ? Ihave Reg Cab 4x4 4cyl 5spd. Step bumper is too high to just mount a ball. I have seen some receiver hitches that mount under the bumper but I dont want to damage the bumper. Do I need to buy a frame mounter receiver hitch or can I get by with a bumper mounted hitch?
