Strength of ranch hand rear bumper?

Well, I searched and didnt find anything like I was looking for.

Can anybody tell me the strength of the Ranch Hand rear bumper? I'm considering getting one, but was curious if there's any way for me to continue using my hitch, instead of the ranch hand.

Just wasn't sure if the ranch hand was really strong enough for serious loads.... I like them, and they look though, but I wouldn't want to hook a sled to it..

97 F250 CCSB - Swamps 250's, WOP QSSB, H11's, IC'd, fresh Swamps tuning (January 2010), etc
Needs valve springs, fuel system, more air, Dana 60, and a BTS..

98 Ranger - Daily driver

96 F350 Crew Cab DRW Centurion(Dad's) - Downpipe, exhaust, and Tymar intake someday?

Only bumper I know who certifies their bumpers is Runnel..insane bumper strength. Only rear I'd get if I needed to tow HEAVY!

Hmm. Is there any possible way that I could use the bumper, but keep use of my stock hitch?

if you want to keep your stock receiver and just replace the bumper with one that is insanely strong, you should look into my bumpers.... I offer a 100% lifetime warranty too... if you find anyway what so ever to damage the bumper, it is covered...

here are a few pics from a customer in Alaska who just sent these to me today...
