I bought this 5 years ago to mount one of their bumpers.

I don't know if it works on other bumpers. I thought stock bumpers didn't use separate brackets, but I could be wrong.

Probably at least as bad as a Jeep so worse than a cow.

The hitch mounts to the frame with or without them. The bumper won't mount without them. They share the same frame bolts.

Have any dealerships confirmed that the part is discontinued?

if the hardbody bumper brackets are the same i still have my rear bumper and the brackets are still bolted to it. really didn’t plan on using it again so i’d be willing to part with them, that is, if they’ll fit.

They're probably similar enough.

Let me know if some pics would help. I have both my bumper and hitch off the truck right now. I have a set of brackets but I was planning to sell them with the bumper. I bought a replacement bumper that came with brackets, except it's missing a set of holes. Undecided yet which brackets I'll end up using.

Also, supporting pic that the bumper brackets aren't needed for the hitch:

Find someone parting out their truck. Use Facebook Marketplace, Facebook Groups, and Craigslist for results that are not too far to drive.

But you will probably have to drive.


...or, you could just build a rear bumper or have a local welder build one for you. Bumpers are easy and fun to build, so you might get a lot of replies by posting a wanted listing on a local group.
