One of the odd things in the description "OEM hitch required for installation"... ? Maybe the mean if you have an aftermarket hich, its not compatible? I'd like to move on this bumper, someone chime in if you can! Thanks!!

By the looks of it, the OEM hitch goes on first and stays on UNDER this bumper. The top 2 bolts are hidden by the OEM cover so it's probably similar.

I have one. Fitment was a C+, maybe B-. It's heavy but rugged. I found that the two mounting points on the back are in the backup sensors' view and rendered the backup alert feature useless.
Yes I had and aftermarket bolt up hitch frame and removed and replaced with a OEM hitch.
Regained some departure angle which is always helpful.
Added dirty pic ...

Thanks for the info. Do you mean the D rings interfere with the backup sensors? How do you feel about the $547 shipped price?

Yes the D rings you can see they are on either side of the sonar sensors.
I think the price is good , esp w free shipping.

Is the front a steaming POS? Seems odd they wouldn’t have known about the backup sensor issue. I know Smittybuilt produces a ton of bumpers for different applications, but maybe they could have tested the backup sensor issue first?
