Bumpers

I'm looking for somewhat cheap bumpers that have D rings on them and a hitch in the rear.

So far I've found these two to be a good deal. Anyone have any experience with them?

Pro Comp bumpers

Rusty's Offroad bumpers

I called someone at Rusty's to ask about how much they would handle for towing and he said something to the extent of " they will handle as much as the jeep will " .. So I guess that's plenty if it's true.

Open to comments/advice.

i went with a set of LOD off-road bumpers, both with d-ring's and the rear has an integrated trailer hitch.

Looking at the links, neither bumper is tow rated. I have a simular bumper to the Pro Comp. I have the Smittybilt Rock Crawler with D rings. The tow hitch accessory is for light duty cargo baskets or like a bike rack. There are no hoops in which to attach trailer safety chains. You could weld some on, but there is not really a lot of support on the back side of the bumper to hold up a trailer in my opinion. If you are just looking for a bumper with D rings and not worried about towing, either one is a great choice.
