    Just installed a slee rear bumper/tire carrier and was contemplating modifying it for a reciever or just adding a stock one

    Anyone in so cal have one that they dont want? If so, please PM me

    And to keep this in tech, has anyone done this or modified the bumper to use a reciever with an Aux tank?

    I have one, but it won't be for sale for a while.. since i won't have my Kaymar for at least 6 months.

    Do you have access to a plasma cutter? I've put a 2" receiver in a flat bumper like that slee one before.. it wasn't too hard.. just buy some 2" receiver tube and brace it properly.. also you wont have a hitch hanging down getting snagged on rocks and such.

    I have one, but it's in Denver. It's free to you if you can find someone here to haul it. I don't want to deal with shipping.

    Yeah, i do have a plasma cutting but i am a little hesitant cutting into such a beautiful bumper. Also, i have the 44 gallon aux tank, so i have think around that too!

    If you change your mind, i will pay for shipping. I shipped a hitch from my taco via fedex ground with no box or nothing, just brought the hitch in, told them i dont care if it get scratched during shipping and they put the label right on it. Its an option! :D

    You can buy mine, Name a price, add shipping, and I'll drop it off.

    My 96 isn't my tow vehicle. The receiver is only there to hit that sweet spot on my shin. I was going to put it onl e-bay next week.
