    Ok so my dad decided to pull a really tight U turn in my taco with the jet ski trailer hooked on to it.
    Well here's the outcome...
    The trailer has a steel cased storage box welded on the front of it, and wine he did the U-ie the box when into my bumper and the tail light.

    Long story short, I'm looking to get an all pro rear bumper, but I have the towing package and I don't want to have to remove it, will the all pro bumper fit without removing the tow package?
    I consider myself lucky that the damage is somewhat minimal.

    Thanks in advance guys

    The bumper will work with the towing package, although the hitch will hang down lower than the high clearance bumper... They also sell a kit that raises the hitch to hide it behind the license plate...

    I'm pretty sure you can keep your trailer hitch with the all pro bumper.

    I thought you had to remove the stock hitch and had to buy their hidden hitch....


    If you can still use the stock hitch, I'm very interested in the all-pro again.

    LOL and I have a dent just like that on my truck. But I bought it with the dent. I wonder if it formed from the same situation.

    The AP rear bumper is more flush than stock, so I would assume your OEM hitch will stick out past it some and lower perhaps. If you want to go the AP route, just get it with the hitch. Could have one custom built.

    I have no idea how the hitch will mount with the allpro rear plate bumper, I'm still trying to figure it out.

    I'm almost positive the factory hitch doesnt work with the all pro rear. Not from what i can see with mine. I built my own hitch to use with my All Pro that tucks it back a tad but still below the bumper.

    That's another question I had, is if I get the hitch from all pro, will I still have the same towing capacity?
    I have a large camping trailer that is just under the max towing limit for the taco...

    All Pro refuses to claim a towing capacity with their hitch due to legal concerns and it not having sufficient testing done to be qualified with a load class. It seems like it would be pretty strong though from the materials they use on it. I chose to build mine because I didnt want a hitch so high as a massive drop hitch would be necessary with the location and the lift on my truck, and always having to flip the license plate up to access it would be a P.I.T.A in my opinion.
