Towbars & stock Bumper...
In case it ain't blatantly obvious,
DO NOT BOLT A TOWBAR DIRECTLY TO THE STOCK SAMURAI BUMPER!
I did, then had second thoughts about it. When I took the bumper off, I discovered three things:
1. The bumper is fastened on to frame extensions at the end of the bumper, not the middle.
2. The bumper is flimsy 1/16th inch stamped steel.
3. If you are real careful scratching the paint off the backside, you'll reveal the words "Kirin Beer". (LOL!)
I would have been pretty pi$$ed when my Sammy decided to find it's own way to Attica sometime early in the trip.
