    I like this one the best out of all the rear bumpers so far. Too bad it won't allow you to keep the factory hitch.


    edit: I just read that you also can't run your rear back up sensors...not sure if I'm liking this set up.

    I wonder/bet you could pull that d-ring mount and hard mount a pintel hook in the same spot.

    Just a guess, but it can solve your tow hitch problem.

    Nice. Too bad they don't make the FJ60 rear bar any more. It was very clean looking.

    The ARB 6x series rear bumper did look nice, but those that ran them had problems with the bumper ends pushing up into the body (deflecting off an obstacle). You would be better off with something a little more sturdy, but I guess it doesn't matter since ARB stopped making them.
