Re: F250 rear bumper upgrade question????
You can get Ranchhand bumpers in different drops, or at least you used to be able to. To do what you're trying to do, I think you need a 5" drop, maybe 6". Most of the ones you see are 8" and cover up the stock receiver, so they just take them off.
I'd call or email them and see what options they have. I've seen plenty of trucks with ranchhands that kept the stock receiver hitch.
Or you could do what I did on my old truck and get the 8" drop, then bolt a receiver mount to the top of the step. You can still use your ball mounts and all of your other 2" accessories in it, and it's plenty stout.
