3.0 out of 5 starsMake Sure your bumper is strong enough!
June 13, 2018
My bumper was not strong enough, it began to crumple. I don't like the gap it leaves because it fits 4/4.5" bumpers, that is where my bumper crumpled. If it were one or the other (4 or 4.5) I think it would be better.
Black paint job appears to be done by a skilled automotive parts painter. Bolts appear to be strong enough for the intended purpose. This is more than sufficient to attach a bike rack to a bumper. I am going to be attempting to use this with a 10000lb winch in a temporary application. It may be insufficient for my needs as the winch is rather heavy. The sides are slightly rouged to provide a sort of grip to the bumper so that the receiver does not slide around. This attention to detail is quite impressive given the cost of the product. With amazon prime and the amazon warehouse check over and approval, you know you are getting a quality product
Installed this in 15 with just 2 adjustable wrenches. Bike rack with 2 mountain bikes attached afterwards and was rock solid the entire first trip. Nothing shifted during transit after 200 km of driving. What more could I ask for?
Looks like the product will work great as intended. Having said that, the welding quality is not great. Looks like the product of a first time welder. Shouldn’t affect the function though. Great price, so you can’t be too picky.
