Rear bumper help

Well, I did several searches and have been all over the internet and still can't find what I want......I'm replacing both front and rear bumpers - the front is easy, plenty of options at great prices...the rear is a problem and I figured someone might be able to offer a suggestion?
Here is what I am looking for:
1) Lightweight
2) No tire carrier, I plan on using the stock mounting option as I will run only 33" tires
3) Inexpensive (<$500)
4) No hitch, I want to retain the factory hitch as I do plan to haul occasionally
5) No alteration of frame

There's gotta be something out there, any ideas?

Thanks!

Evo has a frame cover that retains the rear hitch.

I have an old ACE bumper (I think but will check) that's as simple as it gets and retains the factory hitch.

I'm in the middle of re-spraying it so will post a pic when I get home later.

We have a few options that may fit you well. Let us know if any of these work for you, either on here, or @ 866-601-5340

Poison Spyder Rockbrawler
https://www.northridge4x4.com/part/r...ar-bumper-bare

Evo Pro Series - a little above your budget, but a good bumper. Also a little on the heavier side
https://www.northridge4x4.com/part/r...mper-rear-bare

Evo Fascia - This removes the stock bumper and covers the area to clean it up.

Have any questions about any of them, let me know!

Thank you Gentlemen - I will look into these options...what front bumper would you recommend go with these rear bumpers, I'd kinda like them to 'match/complement' one another. I think...

What are your wants/needs in a front bumper? Stubby, mid-width, full-width? Stinger, no stinger? Were you liking any of the rear bumper options I posted up? If so, let me know which one and I can recommend a front to go with it!
