DV8 rear bumper - to get or not to get...

So I have an opportunity to pick up this bumper with a tire carrier
https://dv8offroad.com/collections/j...roducts/rs-1br
For under 3 bills. Not only I need to talk my wife into it too it I also need to talk myself into it a bit.

I am wondering how much sag will I get from it.... the upside is that I will be able to mount hilift, fuel can and shovel in the back (with a bit of fabrication) but I wonder if the hitch will be good for towing (worried about the tongue weight more then the pull weight).

anyways, open to any random thoughts, comments, suggestions regarding this bumper....

--- 1997 XJ with even more goodies ---

My opinion?

Dv8 sells decent products(I donít personally own any),and thatís a great price @ ďunder 3 billsĒ

You really donít want more than 300-350 lbs on your tongue (based on total towing capacity), that bumper/receiver should handle that without issue.
