Scared to ask what your fuel economy was


I presume to achieve the bumper ratings, they use the same frame/bolt holes that a class V hitch does? (If it's off of a 350, would it fit a 250/150?)

Does anyone have an under-the-beast photo to show how it mounts up? Been a while since I've looked under the back of my van to see the bolt pattern on the trailer hitch mounted to the frame. I have to assume it's standardized and hitch/bumper manufacturers designed all of their products accordingly?

Odontobass,

Call me I have a buddy that wants to buy your bumper, he lives in Los Angeles so it's on your way down to San Diego.

It uses the same holes as the OEM hitch receiver, however most aftermarket receivers require adding one more hole per side, and these do not. They also use the bumper mounting plates, and there are some slight variations by year that might require adding a hole per side in this plate.

It should fit E250s, but it would not fit pre-'07 E150s as those have a smaller frame.

Is this still available and just to clarify it includes the spare tire carrier?
Thanks, Eric

That's a screamin' good deal, with all the Reunel bells and whistle add ons. If I didn't already have a Reunel bumper, I'd drive the 4hrs to pick it up.

Stronger that the frame rails it bolts to, and the receiver hitch it replaces. Opens up the under area for a floor box, bigger rear aux fuel tank, etc. When you consider it replaces a bumper and a hitch, it might be a wash, weight-wise.

Two guys can load it into a hatchback, I once put mine in the back of a Geo Metro

Yup. Can confirm it fits in a car. I stuffed mine in my Focus ST when I dropped it off at Buckstop for refurb.

Wow, I had no idea I was in such good company. 2 of you have hauled Reunel, arguably the biggest and heaviest bumpers made, in small cars?

I bought mine from John and Mandi, old members here about 8 years ago. I drove my BMW 323 touring (wagon) down to Florida and we managed to stuff both the front and rear in to the back of that BMW for the 8 hour drive home. It was memorable. I do not remember how I got them out of the car by myself but I'm sure I was in pain for a few days afterwards. Ah......youth.

There is a guy looking for a rear bumper. Did not say where he is from. Looks like a good deal.
