I have seen other sites that have 2" receivers that you can essentially bolt on to the 4" bumpers, and then get a cargo carrier for a 2" receiver.
I'm basically looking to put my 2 Yamaha EF2000is generators on there (about 100 lbs total), and if there's any way to squeeze some bicycles on, that would be a dream.
Is this safe? I haven't seen anyone talk about if the back bumpers on the Wildwood can even support this.
Thanks in advance!

If your Wildwood did not come with the OEM fold down rack, I doubt very seriously that your bumper is reinforced enough to take the weight of 2 genertors, when other members here are having failures with just carrying a bike.
