Aftermarket tow hitch with Go Rhino step

Does anyone have a picture of an aftermarket tow hitch (the one that hangs under the bumper) with a Go Rhino step?

Thank you in advance.

Re: Aftermarket tow hitch with Go Rhino step

I've read a lot of the threads and most people suggest using the Jeep tow hitch. I don't want to cut anything besides I am not that handy. Direct Tite and Curtis looks to have a great bolt on. I don't plan on towing anything expect for a couple of bikes. Please let me know your thoughts.

I read on one of threads where someone had a Rhino step. It looks great. Besides being a step into the trunk and on top of JGC. It's great way to stop people from bumping your vehicle when they park. I live in NYC. For some reason some people can't measure distance.

I was wondering how it would look with one of the aftermarket hitches.

That looks great. I am going to get the same set up. Bet you the other vehicles think twice before trying to hit your rear bumper. I see you also live in NY. Do you have anything on the front to protect the front bumper?

Thanks for the pictures.

nothing on the front, I don't really like the look of the bull/nerf bars just to let you know, sometimes bottoms out when going down a steep driveway etc. but no damage other than scraping of the paint on the underside. not noticeable unless you look under it. when this happens (only twice so far in over a year)I just touch it up with some black spray paint and it's good as new!
