A bolt type thing. A bolt with two handles welded on. Does that make any since?? Nice and tight for no rattles.

can we see some close ups of the bumper, how you mounted it, the hinge and latch, it looks damn nice especially because it's flush, all i'd do different if i make one is put the tire lower so i dont loose alot of rear visibility
