    Hey how's it going? So I've got. Double cab sr5 4x4. A guy recently rear ended me and caused very minor damage to my bumper and hitch. My insurance company gave me a check. So I'm thinking now I want to upgrade to an off-road armor rear bumper. My question is, since my factory hitch is bent, can I now just mount that bumper directly to the frame? Or do I have to get another hitch assembly too. I also found these, http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B009DK440K/ref=ox_sc_act_image_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A1HUEAKMMEJT9B

    I didn't know if they would work. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

    The hitch is bent but not the frame? Are you SURE?

    Sure am. Had a legit body shop/mechanic check it out. I had my ball in and it just tweaked the receiver enough where it won't slide in and out.

    How much did you get? I suggest a new bumper from BAMF or Relentless.
