Recommendations for rear bumper

I'm looking for a reliable aftermarket rear bumper that can really take a beating and won't cause any damage to my rear end.
If anyone has any recommendations.
Thanks

Savvy's bumpers are great, I'm running one in the front.

But for the rear, since Savvy doesn't recommend theirs for towing, I have run a Dirtworx bumper on the rear of my two TJs. I need to tow my pop-up tent trailer to all my trails so a tow-worthy bumper is something I require.

They're USA made, relatively inexpensive, and are REALLY well built and STRONG. There are a couple trails I like to do where my rear bumper slams down onto a rock ledge and it's hard enough that it kinda makes me cringe every time I get near it. I am still looking for a better line to minimize that slam but after years of looking for it I don't think it's there.

When you have a choice, buy American made.

I like the looks of the SWAG Offroad Big Hit bumper. To Jerry's point, not sure about the tow rating.

I'm a fan of Savvy, but my Hanson rear bumper was totally bomber. LJ's tend to drag their butt on rocks, and my Hanson really held up to a lot of abuse.
