anyone tow with a Barricade Bumper?

I purchased and installed bumper and was wondering if anyone has towed with it, I have a very small trailer, 6X8 and I haul my zero turn our maybe a few sheets of drywall. Just wondering how you guys hook up safety chains since Barricade didn't have have any hoops for them. Thank you

Mmmmm. No holes for chains? I just picked up the front and was looking to get a rear too.

I asked them about this on their online chat--here is there response "It is not tow rated. They are only rated for accessories"

Pretty much makes that bumper option useless for what I need.

I drilled two holes on each side of receiver for the chains. The bumper uses the stock receiver attachment points as well as the frame rails.

I can't recommend towing with a non-tow rated bumper. That being said, I move a 5x8 trailer with my non-tow rated bumper on my TJ. I use a penal hitch because it provides the drop I need and the extra holes in the hitch are what I use for my safety chains.

A good number of aftermarket bumper manufacturers don't want to spend the money and take on the liability of tow rating their bumpers. My recommendation would be to get a bumper with a cutout for a factory style hitch or prepare to cut and clearance the new bumper for a factory style hitch. Let me know if you have questions!
