    So all things considered, not too terrible... but I just put this bumper on in May, so I'm a bit disappointed I need to order another one ALREADY.

    Thanks for posting up. To bad you did not have a ball in the hitch.

    Why? Ball left in hitch is a shitbag move.

    Bullshit! It will protect your rear end. This is what I did and it saved the rear end 2 times now in parking lots I just had to bend it straight.

    I understand what you're saying here, but by that logic anything short of a huge bumper made of bubble wrap is a shitbag move...

    It's on the back of the vehicle, if someone hits the back of a vehicle, it's because they did something wrong. Their responsibilty, tough luck for them.

    I don't mind your setup, just a stronger bumper, but have a hard time with a standard ball hitch sticking out. Reason being the the vehicle that hits the ball hitch will likely have radiator damage resulting a much worse traffic jam than othere wise some damaged bumper/hood. Not to mention in the parking lots, especially on big trucks, taking up space unnecessarily. /rant. Thanks for reading.

    I agree with @Mrsig, if somebody runs into the back of a vehicle, they deserve to get their vehicle ruined.

    I wouldn’t use a ball hitch, but a do appreciate a good solid rear bumper.
