Rear Bumper question

I need a good bumper, with an oversized tire carrier, that's tow rated. Any suggestions?

I just bought this with out the tire carrier. they say I can tow with it. If I do it would only be motorcycle trailer. I think most are rated at 2000lbs.

Hard Rock or LoD are both respectable, heavy duty bumpers with good strong welds. Not sure the tow rating on them but I'm pretty sure they are at least rated as much as the Jeep.

thats a Smittybuilt, its not rated for towing. look into rockhard or LOD they have some pretty good stuff.
Keepin the peace.

I don't think any bumper is tow rated because you don't tow with the bumper. Thats why they invented hitches that bolt to the frame, not the cross member.
