hcarlgolden I would either go with a real hitch or find a bike carrier that hangs from the spare tire. JMO.

GoldenSahara00 You need to tie it into the frame somehow. run a 1/2 inch piece of steel on the bottom with bolt holes and frame tie ins and then weld into that maybe?

I am thinking about putting one on the front of my new bumper now...

30-284 The oem bumper is like 16 ga. formed up steel and is not strong enough to hold your lunch box let alone a bike rack and bike, I'm glad your welder did not do the job as someone that does not know any better might try and pull a trailer with that and have very bad results.

Weld a reciever to rear bumper?

Has anyone out there successfully welded a reciever to the rear of their Jeeps bumper??

I want to be able to use a bike rack that I currently own, as well as a metal cargo rack......I dont want to add a hitch because they are like $125 and lower my ground clearance....

I spoke to some shops that will do the welding and their concern is that too much weight may rip off the rear bumper....
