This Bumper means business. It covers the entire rear of the jk and wraps to the sides up to the rear fender very much like the factory bumper. Yes this bumper will rust in certain spots but with "Rust Reformer and Protective Coating" you wont have a problem. You can paint right over the rust and no one will know the difference with high gloss Rust Paint. I like this bumper because it has built in steps and you can even stand on it if you have a roof rack on your JK. Tough, no questions there-Made in USA and at 88 LBS decent weight.She's a tank and still looks good in a rugged sort of way. Just bolt on and all is well. The rear tail lights may appear loose but hey, no fear because they're there to stay. Depending on idividual tast, no this is not an elegant nor pretty bumper. This is a REAL Bumper!!
On this Ranch Hand Sport Series Rear Bumper it appears that the factory receiver is still used. The picture is a little misleading on that it shows a receiver with it. There is a cut out to make room for factory receiver, so towing limits would not change from factory.
