For everyone with body lifts what do you do about the gap between the rear bumper and the hitch? Do you not worry about it and just leave the gap or is there a relocation bracket for it?

I hear that you can get a hitch setup for a rollpan/hidden application and that will jsut clear the lifted bumper.

Or you can buy a Reunel with the integral hitch and have it built for a 3" body lift....

Jason has the answere once again, you can run a hitch for a roll pan or leave it alone and raise the bumper 3in to where it sits normaly and get some small retangular fog light and mount to the bumper between the hitch and the bumper. Presto chango you now have backuplights you cant hit and break because the hitch keeps anything from hitting the lights from underneath and the light makes the gap between the bumper and the hitch sort of disappear because it fills the void and makes it not so noticeable. WaaLaa

I raised my bumper 3" and then sold my stock hitch and bought a hidden hitch. (for a stock dodge) It sits about 2" higher than the stock one. So mine looks stock again

I left my bumper where it was so there wouldnt be a gap for the hitch & tail pipes. instead covered the gap w/ custom cut diamond plate w/ my liscene plate & lights mounted directly on it.

I left my bumper where it was for bumper law reasons, and got a piece of 53" x 5" diamond plate and screwed it in.
