I was considering an extension, but at 500 lb vertical load rating, if I need to push my trailer with my truck on it in the awkward spot in the back yard, I'm worried that will be a little much for that with an extension.I was considering adding a hitch to the back of my 5th wheel, but it looks like they'd have to relocate an ac unit and it'd be a couple grand at least to do everything. This puts the bikes where I can see them, gives me more flexibility (like the hitch tray I already own), and a tenth the price or less.
You could use an extender with it perhaps?

By welding shop you mean the garage? Lol. I have the tools to make my own and was most likely going that way, just hard when bolt on ones are close to the price of steel. I wouldn't want a bumper mounted one, it needs to be to the frame. It's a toss up between buying one and modifying it or making my own. With the aftermarket bumper, I don't have the tow hooks so it's less important to have the clearance that bolt on one provides. But it appears to be thick steel which is what I would be building it out of. I have thought about going back to a stock bumper, but mine has a perfect platform for working off of, so I kinda don't want to get rid of it for that reason lol.curt and drawtite, and warn make a front hitch for the oem bumpers but with yours you'll want to see a welding shop. I would have them look at the bumper. Most aftermarkets are only still using the 4 oem bolt holes. Vs Warn and their hidden winch mount uses a couple of no-drill brackets to re-enforce.
