Stock bumpers are pretty weak... and you are talking about a good amount of weight location in one stop (when swung out). PLus when you are wheeling... that weight is getting thrown up, down, left and right... I think it would rip right off.

Detour sells a tailbone... which beefs up the bumper yet leaves the factory appearance.
