Agreeing with the previous post that looks like a strange bumper for them to have on the rear. They don't tow any trailers do they? They are overall a very rugged bumper but get one just as rugged without the trailer hitch as part of it.

Previous Suburbans & Excursions from the late '90s up had a tow hitch W/a removable ball hitch.....they were used to tow the backup generators for use at a FH during a blackout but most of these are now installed stationary at BN & DV FH's but w/all the new equipment showing up who knows what might be towed in the future.

Actually since the "really cool bumper" has been brought up on this site it has been a standard bumper on recent Chevy/GMC Heavy Duty Vehicles that the FDNY is now purchasing .....PS i think it really looks great !  but aside from looks it could be fully functional both in the side steps but more importantly in the frame hitch receptacle.

Interesting Bumper they put on the back of that

They started using the beefed up bumper on the current GMC Battalion/EMS Condition units a few years back.  The factory bumpers were too easily dented/ruined.

Makes sense, those bumpers with the parking sensors are about 2 grand

I needed one of those bumpers a few weeks ago when I backed into a tree at a brush fire with the Ford F350 we drive.  Tree did not move... :o

That rig will rack up the mileage real quick.

Probably not. It doesn't look like Ford is offering a diesel in the pickup.
