I can't recommend towing with a non-tow rated bumper. That being said, I move a 5x8 trailer with my non-tow rated bumper on my TJ. I use a penal hitch because it provides the drop I need and the extra holes in the hitch are what I use for my safety chains.

Pretty much makes that bumper option useless for what I need.
A good number of aftermarket bumper manufacturers don't want to spend the money and take on the liability of tow rating their bumpers. My recommendation would be to get a bumper with a cutout for a factory style hitch or prepare to cut and clearance the new bumper for a factory style hitch. Let me know if you have questions!
