sorry for the delay...however, if you want to contact me, send me a PM. I'll get an e-mail, and will usually reply within a couple days, depending on where I am in the world.
As far as towing goes, I don't do it. I did, however, look into it at one point, and I believe there's an attachment you can buy that bypasses the bumper itself...I don't have the exact info, but you can probably find it via a Google search.
Love my rampage recovery bumper and now want a rear bumper to match. Problem is the rampage recovery rear bumper is not rated for towing, can't get the boat to the lake. Do you guys think the rugged ridge xhd textured color will look similar?
