Has anyone installed a front receiver hitch on your '11/'12 SuperDuty? If so, does it protrude past the bumper?

We are planning on buying a fifth wheel next year, and I'm considering installing a front receiver hitch to haul the bicycles. My truck just 'barely' fits in the garage now, and I'm concerned that if this hitch protrudes at all, then the truck might not fit.

I'm using the tennis ball hanging from the ceiling now to get as close to the back wall as possible.

Anyway, if you have one, I'd like to know how it fits.

Thanks

i had one on my 04, but on my 05, the fog lights would have to come off to make it fit. on my 04, it didnt stick out past my bumper.

I made one for My o6 using receiver stock /and a welder LOL

works great with a bully dog step also

there is a lot of Metal under that truck you can have one made that wouldn't need to stick out ,, but I wouldn't tow the truck with one that wasn't engineered ..

I do use mine to park my boat / carry bikes / I have a set of Simpson ladder racks that drop in to the bed and a custom one for the receiver if I want to carry 20 foot stuff
and that bully step for working on the engine
