Keep in mind that keeping the reciever real high and then using a longer drop hitch means there is a lot more leverage on the reciever/bumper. When I build custom rear bumpers with a reciever, I always make the reciever tube long enough to handle not only the leverage issue, but secure it to take the load of a snatch strap pulling the veh out of whatever....
I was refering to the reciever tube welded to the bumper....I run them long, heading towards the front of the truck and then run some sort of cross member to attach to them...Not sure what you mean about making it longer and how that makes it stronger.
thanks for the video. Im going to watch your other installments as well.
Lets all remember that this is a basics prerunner rear bumper how to, Perfect for guys who still use their beds and mount the spare under the truck.
