Receiver mounts?
 
I'm looking at purchasing either a reece hitch or a bumper that has the receiver already mounted in it. I found a website that had the dual rear tube bumpers with 2" receiver for 150$. That sounds like a great deal.. Which receiver will carry the most load, the Reece under the frame, or, a tube bumper assembly that has one mounted to it. I would guess the Reece, but, I'd rather hear it from the folks that "know".
Thanks again,
Chuck

The Reese will be stronger but you'll lose departure angle.

skeeter's right on both accounts. MOST (if not all) tube bumpers have a disclaimer that they are not rated for towing. I removed my tubes and installed the MOPAR rear rock crawler bumper. Plan to add a 3500 tow bar (mine's an LJ) soon, so I just did the research you're starting.
