    I'm either buying or welding a better rear bumper, my truck has the towing package. I do pull trailers.
    There's only two I've found that states works with the towing hitch.
    One of them I think is relentless?? Can someone explain how it bolts on? Pics etc?
    Thanks

    Do you have pics of their bumper, how it bolts up? I emailed them 2 weeks ago, haven't heard back.

    Does this replace the chromed shell thats bolted to the factory tow hitch? Or this bolts to the entire frame that uses 5? 6? Bolts on each side.

    Just a few, more to come
    Bolts on to the 3 frame side bolts per frame rail in the rear so it clears to the outside of the hitch. The added/optional hitch step option bolts on to the lower bumper plate of the new bumper, and ties in to the 2 bolts near the license on top of the hitch as well.
    We've replied to all emails that have had correct addresses, some people send emails and mistype their email addresses, nothing we can do there.

    Thank you for explaining how it attaches. So the tow hitch receiver remains and the bumper y'all sell bolts on the frame rail sides and the hitch bolts through on a plate with the new bumper.

    I'm still trying to learn tap talk. Message might not have gone through.

    Will the 00-02 Relentless fit a 2004? The factory bumpera are the same.
