    I'm not to sure but maybe if you talk to some people one on one they can do something a bit more custom to fit your needs.

    If your going to replace the rear bumper why not just replace it with one that has a towing reciever built into it. This way you can improve your departure angle and still tow.

    Dude,

    You are going to have a very tough time finding an aftermarket rear bumper that is not custom made and will let you keep your standard class III tow hitch. The mounting points for the tow hitch are almost always used for the new bumper. Also since there are so many different designs of hitches, it is almost impossible to build a bolt on replacement off-road bumper that guarantees fit.

    Most of the after market bumpers like Demello, etc are rated for off-road towing only. This is for legal reasons, not strength. It costs a lof of money for a shop to be licenced to sell products with a tow rating.

    There is some talk that Asfir bumpers (from Israel) may be able to accomidate the stock trailer htich, but I haven't heard of any of their product actually making it to North America and being put for sale.

    To add to your list of bumper companies, try www.sonoransteel.com. They make a nice product. Demello is also a top choice.

    Here is mine...
    If I had time I'd do another with a winch...not a 2" receiver.
    My approach angle is better but ARB looks better.
    Be prepared to spend some $$$ on a custom job. It's not as easy and you need the vehicle there to fit it. I spent a good 20 hours on my front. Another 30 with Chris getting the rear built.
    Regarding Towing...I have a 2" receiver in the rear but it is pretty high up...I'd need a serious drop hitch or an offroad trailer...in the plans...to make it work. I did some serious gusseting to make sure I could tow with it, but there is a lot of liability there. I haven't pulled anything with it yet...and if I were pulling a boat to the lake it would be in my LC, not the taco.

    Armorology has some pretty great looking bumpers.
    You do need to bring your truck to them in order for them to fabricate something. www.armorology.com
