I needed both a Hitch-Haul and a trailer hitch extension, so I built both into one unit.

You can't really tell, but I also reinforced the receiver and converted it to a double (over-and-under) receiver, like a Tork-Lift Superhitch.

I also enlarged the factory step, built a folding step that slides into the extension, painted the bumper and steps with DuPont Imron polyurethane enamel, and added polished aluminum diamond plate.

Sexy!

Great job.
What kind of lights are those mounted on the back bumper? And do you have the wired with an extra switch?
