Rear bumper attachment

#1

Hi all, just trying to answer a quick question. The dealer doesn’t know specifically what this is for. Said it might be for a rear bumper guard but that’s pretty vague. Does anybody know what it is for and then what brand it is?


#2

Does it bolt to the frame? If so, it might be for getting pulled out if stuck, or pulling somebody else out. Is there only one?


#3

Yeah, bolted to the frame and there is another one on the other side. Wasn’t sure if it was some sort of weight distribution for towing or…?


#4

Looks like an aftermarket addition, probably towing related.


#5

Rear bumper guard mounting bracket. I would remove them before injuring my leg on one of those brackets.

Do you think it’s pretty generic or specific to a certain brand?


#7

Probably brand specific. Take it to your local truck/4X4 accessory dealer and find out.
