Default Trailer Hitch Receiver vs. Aftermarket Bumper
Hi all, have a question about an Ironbull Bumper for the rear of the Truck.

Do the Trailer Hitch Receiver support the frame of the truck or is it only to handle a trailer?

Do a Ironbull Bumper have the same function of support as the OEM version?

Thanks
Daniel

When I got my 2013 it had iron bull bumpers. I cannot comment on the frame support, but I do tow my 6000# boat with no issues. It is also a eater strength bumper. I had to drill 2 holes in to get the inner 2 parking sensors installed and it was a pita. Even with carbide bits and freaky tools.

To guess I would say yes it supports the frame. From a side to side perspective it's stout as hell. (And heavy). Mine also has winch mounts. If it's strong enough to winch from..................
