Aftermarket rear bumper that works with a Reese or Curt hitch?

Title pretty much sums it up. All of the rear bumpers I have looked at are "not rated for towing". I realize they more than likely can handle it, but if it's not rated to tow, I don't want to tow with it.

My rig came with a Reese hitch that I'm happy with and would like to keep. The previous owner put a couple of dents in the OEM bumper and it also doesn't match with my new ARB front bumper.

Suggestions, aside from making my own from scratch?

The 4x Innovations Rear Bumper has a built in class 3 rated hitch. It is the only one we know of that is tested and rated to meet the SAE hitch standards.

All was looking good till I put it in my cart and shipping was $238. Puts the total beyond my budget. Hopefully next year. Great looking product and exactly what Iíll need when it comes to towing my cargo trailer for hunting adventures.

You're gonna be hard pressed to find an aftermarket bumper for cheaper than what 4xi's is right now.
