I know it's not "rated" for towing but GenRight really built this bumper extremely well. I have a small tent trailer that I tow behind my jeep and have had zero issues for since purchasing it in 2016.
I have running this bumper for 7 years. I don't use it to tow anything heavy but it works great for my jet skis!
