    I lost track thousands of dollars ago.
    You can't tow much if any with a factory bumper. There is a few company's that sell bumpers you can tow with what type are you looking for Plate or tube?

    Why not buy a used OEM bumper and add a receiver hitch? You can get a Class III or IV hitch receiver for less than $150.

    think i'm gonna buy a black rear bumper for about $150 & add a hitch for another $150. just bought a reese t-connector trailer wiring kit #85250 from vip discount auto for $36; hope it's the right one for me or i can take it back i suppose but i'll probably use it. wondering if i could just buy one bumper/towing/license plate rig and be done with it in one swoop.
