I was looking at that threaded 4 bolt hitch plate on the rear bumper. It seems pretty darn stout to me. I wanted to know if there have been any problems using it (until I rebuild a new bumper). When I bought the truck, it came with a nice receiver but it did not take long to realize that it really gets in the way. It lowers the back end and dramatically affects my rear clearance. I want that receiver off. But I am not going to be able to buy/build a new rear end soon. I do not do a lot of heavy pulling. I just wanted to know if that thing was worth using. Looks fine to me and it would improve my clearance tremendously. I might even raise a pole off it and stick my tire there since that is in a bad place too. Put a hitch pin on it so I can get in the back.
