    Ok I found a guy to custom fab me a rear bumper YES!!!!:D

    He lives 5 min down the road!!!

    Anyway onto the question,

    As long as I get it mounted to the frame I should have no problems towing correct?

    I tow a 12ft boat, and rarely 2 motorcycles, a car trailer, and some misc stuff.


    Just wanting to make sure. Now searching the net for some bumper ideas, I want to have something custom for my truck, not one that looks like everyone elses any ideas?


    Thanks!

    I would do something like the ATO rear bumper. I am not that hard core to cut the body for the extra rear clearance style bumper, but I liked what he did with the stock replacement bumper he offers. I have been thinking of a design as well, the hardest part will be to get the ends of the bumper to flow in design with the body side area. :cool:
