Looking for suggestions for a rear bumper with tire carrier that is also rated for towing (6x10 landscape style trailer for my motorcycle). I was looking at the DV8 RS-2 bumper but was wondering if anybody out there has suggestions or have had good luck with other setups. I have my RK lift and 35x12.5/17's going on in the next week but Ive read a bunch of posts of people stating that they don't recommend putting the 35 on the tailgate. also thought about getting just a bumper and then a separate tire carrier to handle the 35. Thanks

You may be better off looking for one that is notched for the factory tow hitch. I have yet to find a good one that is rated. A bumper with tire carrier is next on my list and I tow around 2000 pounds every weekend.

Check out Poison Spyder too. I have the Bruiser one that has a rated hitch and has the hole to mount the optional swing gate tire holder on now or later (as I am) if/when I get a larger tire. Right now I’m using my Teraflex HD hinge for a 35.

I also has the ACE rear bumper with the tire carrier for 4 years now. Love it.
Just got rear ended a few months ago at a 4 way stop sign. Not even a scratch on the bumper but the Ford Escape that hit me has significant damage to the front end.

Just got an email from Ace saying my inner fenders shipped and that they are having a 20% off sale so Im thinking that may be the best route since its more affordable now. Although the shiping rates suck lol. I have a DV8 front bumper now and was just curious if any of you guys know if the textures on the finish(powder coating) are close of if they are noticeably different?
