Aftermarket Rear Bumper Options

I'm in need of a new rear bumper for my Wagoneer and I'm looking at what the available aftermarket options are. Coming from the CJ and TJ market, it seems like my options are limited to BJ's and BJ's

I'd like it to have:
Tow Receiver Hitch
Spare Tire Mount
Recovery Point

I don't trust myself enough with a welder to make something that is safe and dependable, nor do I realistically have the time right now to spend on it. Are there any other aftermarket options? Has anyone repurposed a bumper from a different vehicle (in case I could find something used)?

Just remember that your spare tire mount on the outside will be easy pickin's south of the border.

They will walk away with anything that is not inside your jeep.

True, but I think that's going to be the least of my concerns of stuff that could be stolen - a spare I can lock on fairly easily. It's the stuff on my roof rack like surfboards that will be tough to secure.

As it is, I have a spare fuel tank in place of the original spare and need the space inside the vehicle for storage.

Look up RSTEP, he makes front/rear bumpers as well. Bob is a great guy as well (so are the guys at BJ's).

I used a chain inside a bicycle tube bolted to the roof, that wrapped around the fin.

But I ride single fin boards with a glassed on fin.

Thanks for the lead, I just sent him an email.

I knew I liked you

The two boards that I'm going to take are both single fins glassed in without leash plugs. One is an old 9' Hap Jacobs, the other a 10' log shaped by an old friend.

I'm looking at some fancy pants Yakima straps that have a steel cable inside them for security, but it's still not great.
