If you are looking for a useless cluster of plate then please don't call me as I only build things that get used.

I couldnt take it anymore, I just pulled the rear bumper and hitch off my jeep- Gonna make a new one just to show you that its possible to have solid frame mounting without a cluster of plate

My trailer hitch has better mounting than your bumper- mounts to the side and bottom of the frame- Probably so it can resists side to side and up/down pulling better. but the people who make trailer hitches probably dont know anything, you should write them and tell them they are over killing the mounting and a loader couldn't pull off half of the mounting they have
