Hi Guys
I'm going to buy a slee rear bumper and I just found out that they don't come with a tow hitch.
this is critical for me because I tow quite often my boat.
do you know if there is an option to put a tow hitch on the bumper? and make safe to tow?
I prefer not to add an original tow hitch under the bumper because it will take quite a lot from the clearance.
BTW I was trying to call them and ask them but they don't answer the phone...
thanks

I just saw that
Thanks a lot!
Iq see that it says that it's not rated for towing
Does someone tried this for towing as well?
Is it safe?

When they say not rated for towing it just means they have not jumped through all the government hoops (DOT) to get it certified to a specific level or weight for towing, not that it's not safe to tow with.

Are you using the adapter or the internal one that requires some drilling?

I used Slee's 2" internal receiver system with my stock bumper/cross member. I towed 3,500 lbs with it and did several tow strap extractions that were pretty high force.

Great product, get it and don't look back, especially since you have the extra strength of the Slee bumper. This pic shows it before I bolted it up - you are getting some nice triangulation here, too.
