Rear bumper question

ive been doing a little bit of searching on here and somewhat on other websites about rear bumpers and i really like the all pro rear bumper and the relentless fab rear bumper. They have a nice look to them IMO but they dont fit with a factory hitch. which is something i dont want to deal with. is there a rear bumper out there that is decent and can fit with the factory hitch? i also dont want to have to cut into the side of my fenders

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think so. The aftermarket off-road bumpers bolt where the factory hitch was, so it's not an option.

Only high clearance rear bumpers require cutting. The others are direct bolt-on replacement.

Brute Force Fab seems to be the one I'm leaning towards when everything is considered for my situation.

CBI Offroad's Trail Rider includes a hitch receiver. That is not the high clearance bumper, so no cutting is required.

A lot of aftermarket rear bumpers come with a hitch. I don't think any allow the use of the Toyota factory hitch though. I keep thinking there might be one but I can't place it. Maybe it was a dream...

Most of them offer a hitch as an option, Relentless does, and the main reason they say they are not rated for towing is because they haven't had them tested and don't need the liability of someone doing something dumb and trying to blame them.

Look up what people tow with their after market hitches and see if you're comfortable with whatever you need yours for. I'd say it could probably handle most of what you throw at it.
