That picture is helful, but it doesnt look like the one on my truck. It attaches in the same locations, but is shaped differently. The one on my truck is all welded one piece with no parts removeable and attaches directly to the bumper in the rear like your picture shows with two screws. Also, I have 6 total bolts securing the hitch and bumper per side. Four bolts on each side attach the hitch to the frame and 2 bolts each side connects the hitch to the outside ends of the bumper. I don't understand it.

I'd really like to see how the bumper attaches to atruck with no hitch. Maybe it would help me understand this better.
