Aluminess Light Bar and Front Hitch Receiver

Inquired to Aluminess regarding any future plans to make a light bar or front receiver hitch similar to what they offer for the Sprinter. The response was
Quote:
We haven't got enough demand for such items to put in to the development phase for the transit. If we had the interest for say 20+ committed customers then it would be enough incentive to do so. Until then, we don't have any plans, but check back in time to time.
Anybody want to get onboard with expressing interest?

If we get enough interest I may be able to get these made locally in the PNW and probably be cheaper than Aluminess.

Ok, I'll talk to my friend with the bender and see what we can work out. Probably make a prototype for my van and then base design changes and orders off that.

Also, how many want aluminum vs steel. There will be some weight difference, but not as much as the larger style bumpers.

Is the front hitch an add-on or removable?... I live in a state where front plates are required.
