    I had never heard of Buckstop. Found them here. Nice, but for $1,400.00 I doubt that I will ever have one. :eek1:

    Would be this style, but I make 'em with a preruner bar made from 2", I could make it with a full brush guard like this but it would cost a little more. Just shoot me an E-mail if U are interested and we can hamer out the details :wink1: twbfab@pirate4x4.com

    Bumper hitch class specifications

    The Kennewaw Mountain Multi Carrier bumper doesn't seem to specify a tounge weight or max towing capacity for their bumper anywhere on their website. I have seen alot of custom bumpers that have trailer hitch receivers in them, but most of them don't specify a trailer hitch class. A class IV hitch is for towing up to 12,000 lbs with a max tounge weight of 1,200 lbs. How do custom rear bumpers with hich receivers compare to a class IV hitch?

    Good question about the ratings.

    I did a search but couldn't find it. But it was a class III or IV hitch with a large size piece of tubing welded to it and wrap around body armor and to make the hitch a rear bumper. Wish I could find the picture, it looked great.

    Can anyone help remembering ???
