Rear bumper for towing...

Hey guys I am looking for some advice here on a rear aftermarket bumper that I can still use to tow a small trailer. I see hitches on some but it seems there just there to carry baskets and such.

Any help and responses are appreciated.

Thanks!!!

A lot of the aftermarket bumpers retain use of the factory hitch. What's your budget?

Try ace pro series and Poison spyder rock brawler.

My jeep did not come with a factory hitch. So with that being said I could just get a hitch and wiring harness or put that money into a bumper.

Well that's my thinking anyway...

Body armor rear bumper is about $300 from amazon; add rugged ridge receiver for 60. You have the set up you are looking for at less than 400 shipped.

I have the ace pro series rear bumper with tire carrier. I like it so far, I have not pulled my jet ski with it yet, but a small utility trailer. One thing I like about ace's bumper is that it retains the factory towing specs and is also very well made.
