Towing

Are the Warn, RRC, Rampage, etc, rear bumpers with a 2in receiver suitable for safely towing something like a fish/ski boat?

I noticed most of them have a 2000lb towing cap with a 200lb tongue weight and I'm wondering how strong that is.

Others have a non rated. Does that mean they won't tow anything or it has unlimited towing power.

Any advise?

I believe that the "unrated" means they are not comfortable rating their products for a specific weight. I would not get the "unrated" one if I were towing something. Have you looked into a hitch instead of a bumper? You also have to remember that Jeeps only have about a 2000 pound towing capacity themselves.
