Hitch with bumper-depth receiver?

Has anyone seen a "hidden" style hitch for the Nitro with a receiver assembly that is flush with the rear bumper? I was looking at the photos posted by lilsalmon and AirJunky (here) and it looks like both the factory and the Hidden-Hitch layouts have the receiver protruding a good bit beyond the bumper.

I've whacked my shins on the hitch ball on other trucks about a million times, and to me that's really the primary advantage of a receiver setup in the first place -- not having something to bump into when you're loading and unloading the back.

I have the same reciever hitch as Lilsalmon (Hidden HItch). It doesn't stick out too far. I think the bumper it self actually comes out further than the hitch. When the wife gets off wotk I'll take a few pics and post them.
Here's the pic I promised

It maybe sticks out an inch, maybe an inch and a half. I have had it installed about two monthes and have never bumped into it. Now with the ball mount inserted thats something different.:D
