Anyone have a front 2" receiver

I'm looking to put a 2" or 1.5" receiver that mounts to the front so I can put a bicycle rack or a tail gate bbq. Everyone I find mounts behind the bumper and you are required to remove the fog lights.

Anyone have one that doesn't require removing the lights?

Re: Anyone have a front 2" receiver

Mine had one on it when i bought it and it actually come's out all the way at the bottom of the bumper. Mine is welded to the frame though. Looks like someone just modified a rear one to fit.

Ranchhand bumpers have a 2" reciever built in to them I think.

Re: Anyone have a front 2" receiver

I've debated cutting it off but i know the moment i do something will come up where i wish i had it. It also makes for a great spot to put jack stands. I've also thought about making an adapter plate for a winch i have in the garage that would slide into the recievers.
