    I neea a rear bumper for my 2001 Dodge Dakota. It is coming apart. The factory chrome POS is not going back on it if I can help it. Any ideas?

    All the ones I am finding on line talk about 10 guage or 7 guage hitch plate (7 guage=3/16') . The POS that is on the truck has a 1/2" hitch plate. Looks like I may have to make a bumper at this rate.

    I have learned more than I wanted to when I started this. I think my best bet is to get a cheap bumper that looks nice and not use it for towing as plained but to a Reese Hitch for towing.
