receiver hitch question

Hiya,
I'm looking at fitting a new rear bumper with tire carrier to carry my spare wheel with 33" tire
I've been looking into a Smittybilt classic or Rugged Ridge classic both have 2" receivers, I know these bumpers are not the best but I'm on a tight budget and I just need somewhere to hang my spare when wheeling.

My question is about the 2" receiver, if I buy a receiver tow Hook or D ring will these be suitable as a tow recovery point when out wheeling or are they just for show.

OP, I recently picked up Smittybilt XRC front (stinger) and rear bumper (with tire carrier and D-rings) I couldn't be happier! I am in the middle of moving and use a 1 ton flatbed trailer for furniture and other large objects. Honestly, I believe the bumper can handle more weight but our TJ's are only rated so high (body length causes issues).

Distributors of nearly all rear bumpers with receivers have to disclaim that they are for 'accessory use only'
