Best Rear recovery options....?
Hey guys ive done a lot of research on this topic and i still cant decided on what the best solution for me and my jeep would be. I hoping this thread can make me think of something i haven't thought of or definitely give me more detail and info.
I currently have the bumperettes on the rear of my YJ but I Plan on eventually doin a lift with 33 inch tires on my jeep, with that comes the 33" spare tire, I know that a good option would be a rear swinging bumper/ tire carrier to not only carry the weight of the 33' but would also give me some d-rings for recovery depending on the model bumper, so with that I also want to have an option to tow a small trailer/ jet skis, if need be ( I do not own one though).
Do the rear tire swinging bumpers that have a hitch have a decent weight rating/ recovery pull rating from the hitch? or should I weld a hidden hitch to the frame for towing/ d-ring insert for recovery? and then what the hell do I do about a nice looking bumper and the new tire size support?
Does anyone know of a swinging tire bumper that doesn't have a hitch ? cuz everyone ive seen has one. I Think if i could find that them mabe the hidden hitch will solve my towing and recovery needs and the new bumper will hold the new spare.
Thanks in advance!!!
