Does anyone know of a hidden hitch that will work with a factory rear bumper on my 06 crew cab? I had a sir michaels one and it only worked with a roll pan. I drag my current factory hitch all the time so I am looking for something that will give me some more clearance out back since I will be going lower here pretty soon. :D

I want one that you remove the license plate on the FACTORY bumper and that is where the hitch is. Not any of that shit that is below the rear bumper. That is what I have already and it's fucked

You can put a spring loaded hinge so you don't have to remove the plate.

ah i see. i would think the hidden hitch would work. find someone with one and have them take some measurements for you to see if it lines up. :imo

word. you could prob find the flipdown plate holder from a third gen camaro/firebird. they have them so you can get to the hatch keylock. those cars are everywhere.

I had a sir michaels hidden hitch for a roll pan and it did not work. I guess I deleted the pictures that I had. I probably could have made it work but I am actually looking for a bolt on hitch that is made to come out behind the license plate on the factory rear bumper. If no one makes one and I have to build one, then that is cool. I just don't have the time right now to mess with it.

Pretty sure that one goes under the bumper.
Yea it does i was just looking for the hidden hitch made for gm bumpers it doesnt hang as low. I think the rollpan one would work it wud just be offset behind the bumper alot.
