Maybe it’s a hitch for horses.
The trouble with that, is that they’re MADE TO BE RUN INTO…!
Ever been to a restaurant when there’s a tugboat pilot dinner-function going on? You DO NOT want to be the last one to leave!
Looks about the same as the average 70s Ford bumper
Has a decidedly nautical theme to it with the big cleats on top of the bumper.
Left hand down a bit(Anyone else remember the Navy Lark?)
Looks like something CPO Pertwee would build.
Port Out, Starboard Home!
A truck with 11 fenders!
I would be worried about setting off the airbags as I removed the original bumper cover and bumper. Looks cool, maybe a bit too wide for tight parallel parking spots.
Looks like a dock I tied up to once in Coosbay, Or harbor.
That will pass California vehicle inspection?
Besides the rope ties on the top it looks like a pushtruck at Bonneville or one of the dry lakes or maybe even for a dirt track somewhere.

Those little tire dog toys aren’t cheap!
