Towing

I know this bumper's hitch isn't rated for towing. However those that have this bumper, how would you feel towing behind it? Since I have a shell I know have to carry my dirt bike around with one of these.



Would you feel safe driving on the hwy and fire roads with this behind you. I'm going to over estimate and say there would be something like 800 ftlbs of moment on the hitch.

It does fine:
The thing is so stout (like all of Demello's stuff) you could tow a tank with it.
Yeah its more then likely that the frame will snap befor the bumper does. :D

I'd suggest at the very minimum plate the frame.
Demello sells some nice frame stiffeners for the back also!

Best thing for folks to do is to just call Demello’s at 951-735-4417 and run all their questions past Jason. He’s always willing to help there and knows more about all of it than most folks.

Yeah, I only suggested that because I have carried a few hundred lbs of crap on a hitch carrier before, both with and without frame plates(from demello) and I could tell a difference when it comes to frame flexing. Without frame plating, my truck felt like a diving board flexing like crazy at every bump on the highway. With plating it still felt like a diving board, but a more stiff one(same weight). So if he plans on carrying a bike in the back like that, I(and I'm sure demello) will suggest to plate the frames. But I agree, ask Demello about that.

So could i haul a small trailer with a 4-wheeler on it with this bumper? Would that be safe because i know it says Offroad use only. Because i was thinking about buying one of these bumpers.
