Need Bumper with Hitch Suggestions

I am looking to put a hitch on my 07 2-door wrangler. I figure it will only be a few more dollars to buy a new bumper with a built in hitch. Any suggestions or direction for for me? Is it better to just do a hitch and keep factory bumper?
I will be towing a relatively light weight dirt bike trailer with two bikes.

Thanks for your comments or suggestions!

I believe with the bumpers and built in hitch, they arent as strong and cant support as much weight. If your only looking for a hitch than get the hitch and save some money, but if you want to get a bumper down the road than just get a bumper with built in hitch however look for a bumper with hitch that can support your needs.

Most aftermarket bumpers with built in receivers aren't rated for towing. Doesn't mean you cant do it.n JCR makes a nice stubby bumper with a receiver that I will most likely pick up soon.
