I want to be able to pull a gooseneck trailer with it, so here's the beginning of a gooseneck hitch. It'll stay mounted between the frame rails, and the top of the ball should be even with the frame. That'll make the ball about the same height as the one in my pickup.
But, I'm pretty sure I'll have to remove the bed to be able to use it. I might be able to cut an access hole in the bed with a trap door, but I don't think the neck of the trailer will clear the bed. I haven't got that far yet.

I call this the 8D mod... The Distracted, Drunk, Dumb, or Deranged Driver Defensive Deflection Device.
Since the front bumper is so high, if there ever does happen to be a collision, I wanted to reduce the chance of running up on top of some little car. Plus it makes it look tougher too!WP_20170827_005.jpgWP_20170827_007.jpgWP_20170827_009.jpgWP_20170827_010.jpgWP_20170827_006.jpg


I still need to add reinforcement to the bottom mounting points on the bumper since I'll probably add shackle mounts there like the A3 deuces.

Here's what I did with mine. Then after mounting the extra bumper I installed my winch behind them and used the support brackets to mount my Tow-Bar on.
