you need to get a honda impaler for that thing(by that i mean one of those giant hooks that goes in your hitch) then the bumper would definitaly say "just try me".

That is, without a doubt, the best looking rear bumper I've seen. I want to make one like that when I find the fullsize I want.

Theres some .120 wall DOM and some .standard .20 black iron. its all 1 1/2 in. dia. pipe. I think... I built most of that bumper a year and a half ago and some of the pipe was extra from my buddy's projects..

That is hands down my favorite rear bumper I have seen on any Ranger on the site. Love how well the front matches it as well.

Looks great man
