    Anybody ever use the rear bumper bar (the bar under the bumper on the truck) to pull someone out? I have a D-ring receiver too, and need to get that on, but I've heard of this location too.

    I have a d ring receiver. Smitty built I think. I have only used the bar under the bumper to pull snow tubes around the neighborhood and field by my house.

    The recovery strapped pushed up on the bumper causing the black trim to push out...I popped it back in.

    Probably not ideal but you could use the holes next to the hitch to pull out a light car. They should be strong enough as they are really used for the safety chains on a trailer if it so happens to fall of the ball.

    By rear bar are you talking about the hitch supports to the frame?

    Yes it will take the load but use d-rings to clamp around the bar.

    I use a D-ring receiver. My factory hitch is massive. Not sure if you get a different one with the tow package but mine has several points that are fastened to the frame. I'd take a pic but I don't want to get cold.
