Daniel_M I wouldn't tow a car with that bumper or a Jeep for that matter. A 4runner is more than 2,000lbs and you are exceeding the tow capacity of the Jeep and bumper.

06 Red Rubicon Yeah I know they don't tow rate them for insurance purposes but supposedly it's a class III rated bumper. I've read a handful of stories about people towing cars with them and not having any issues with cracks just wanted to hear from the crowd any opinions.

Lithium Lotus Most bumpers are not tow rated for liability reasons. I wouldn't feel safe towing a small car let alone an suv with a Wrangler.

daggo66 Check the specs. I'm pretty sure they aren't tow rated. The built in receivers are usually just for accessories.

Towing a car with an SRC rear bumper

I am considering buying an SRC or XRC Smitty Built bumper for my 2012 2 door rubicon to occasionally tow cars around with. I would be using a tow dolly with brakes pulling around 4runners and toyota pickups for my business. I know the suggested tow ratings and that the wheelbase limits it but I wanna know anybodies thoughts from experience on towing with an SRC/XRC and durability?
