Sometimes solutions to simple problems really are simple, case in point the Spare Bumper and Super Bumper from Mohr Manufacturing, Inc..
This simple yet strong bumper simply slides into your receiver hitch to give you true 5 MPH crash protection. Living and working in a metro area I have actually, as much as I hate to admit it, backed into the wall of a parking structure as well as a shopping cart and scratched the paint on my bumper. This product should prevent those little “miss haps” as well as add a little extra protection against tailgaters.

The Super Bumper comes with a Ball Mount And Chrome Hitch Ball that you can tow 6,000 lbs with 600 lbs of tongue weight and comes in two lengths and three different styles, U-paint, Black and Chrome. I opted for the 24″ Spare Bumper (no ball mount) as I tow more than 6,000 lbs and liked the clean look of not having a hitch ball on it. Both the Spare Bumper and Super Bumper come with a anti-skid step pad for use as a convenient step into the bed of your truck.

I don’t think you can beat the rear bumper/tailgate protection for the price, keep in mind the Spare Bumper costs about the same as a good bug shield! More info and many more product pictures at
