    I am not able to see website inventory pictures from most sites (ARB, C4, Relentless) as most are loading as cached text-based sites, so I need your help.

    I was rear-ended yesterday and I want to have my (slightly) bent rear bumper replaced with a steel bumper. The big hiccup is I want to retain my factory hitch. So far I have only been able to find bumpers for my 2015 with an integrated receiver.

    Any suggestions for a replacement would be greatly appreciated, especially if you have pictures of yours! Thanks.

    I picked up the Hooke Road bumper, it includes the reverse pods & shackles. But unfortunately did not include the license plate square threaded inserts. :confused:

    I forgot to add to your original requirement, the hitch I mentioned does utilize the factory hitch. It’s not an integrated hitch. It bolted up seamlessly.

    Thank you everyone for the quick responses. I am going to go with the Fab Fours bumper. The body shop quoted about $750 for all of the OEM parts and painting, and the Fab Fours Premium Rear Bumper is on sale this month for *drumroll* $750. Thank you to the owner of the little Volkswagen that couldn't stop in time. I'm grateful you had insurance. I'm sorry your car took it a lot harder than my truck, but I'm glad you're OK.
