Since everyone insists on doing everything else except paying attention to driving, I decided to add a little deterrent to tailgating - a four position hitch with a hook. Installed hook up of course.
Haha... Is it legal to drive like that? I've been told that it's illegal to drive with the hitch in without a trailer

I was just having this discussion with my wife thinking of buying or making some kind of hitch bumper.
Not much back there to stop some one from damaging your bumper.

It depends on the state. I don't know if it is here, and don't care, TBH. If the cops wanna stop me, so be it. It will stay there until I'm literally forced to remove it.

I run the WeatherTech BumpStop black plastic model. Used it on my KL too. Great shelf for groceries, and a quick seat when in the woods camping.

Do you have a picture? I want to add a hitch and add the BumpStop, but I worry they may be too low to the ground to be of any use.

A few months ago someone bumped into me when I suddenly stopped for a school bus:
(you can barely hear it in the video).

It is not too low for anything on the factory hitch. Aftermarket hitch might be too low.
