Which models accommodate for factory hitch and lights, AND also have a license plate holder/light? I cannot narrow down my choice. Hell I’ve almost decided to just keep stock bumper for now, and buy a new spare bracket to accommodate a 37” tire and buy the Mopar 3rd brake light relocate kit.

The Motobilt Crusher rear bumper accommodates the hitch receiver and has an option for being able to mount a pair of 3" cube lights inside of it. The license plate is what generally needs to be relocated to the spare with most bumpers.

I bought the Warn Elite rear bumper and tire carrier. Solid as a rock with a 37 mounted up and will carry a 40” tire.

I like that for the price.
They have 10% off codes too, so a bit over $200 shipped. I have their high slim fender kit and they were much better than I expected & fit perfect. Also got their 20" light bar/ 4 pod combo and again, very surprized w/ the overall quality. I'll probably end up w/ that rear bumper too, nice that it has a receiver and the reverse lights are recessed back to keep protected.

I'm in the same position. So far I'm leaning towards Expedition One.

I ordered this one at the beginning of September, and I have been going through a bunch of issues!
Expedition One is just right up the road from me, so I figured I would be able to pick it up directly from them. I spent a couple of days trying to contact them before I placed an order. Nobody picked up the phone there, so I sent a message over Facebook. It took a month for them to reply, by the time they had, I had already ordered it through a third party.
So when I ordered, the vendor originally told me they were 5-10 days, with free shipping. A week after placing the order, they contacted me asking for $200 to ship via freight, direct from the manufacturer. As I said, I live 20 miles down the road from Expedition One. Okay, I decided to pay for shipping, since that is what is shows on Expedition One's website. I also double checked their lead time, and they once again tell me 5-10 days. Several weeks go by, and I still hadn't heard anything, so I contacted the vendor. They tell me it's scheduled to ship 18 November. Okay, I'm a little frustrated, but I can deal with it. Today I contacted the vendor and they tell me that the ship date has now been pushed to 14 December. WTF?! How does 5-10 days turn into three months!?

Long Story Short. If you order this bumper, be ready to wait. Like I said, my ship date keeps getting pushed back. I am seriously considering cancelling my order and going with the Warn.

Well that sucks. That was on my short list... That's starting to make LOD look like the better option...

Took a month for a reply yet you still thought this would be a good company to buy a product from. :facepalm:

Well, I messaged the manufacturer, waited 24 hours and didn't get a response, so I ordered from one of their vendors. A month later, the manufacturer replied to message.

The Hyline Summit rear bumper has been at the top of my list for a bit. Clean, has d-ring mounts, leaves room for the stock hitch, and accommodates the license plate, with lighting! I wish they offered a version without the sensor mounts, but they do offer plugs to cover em up.
