Default Smittybilt vs. Nates 4x4

I just ordered a rear bumper and swing away fron nates but its taking 2 long to get and the customer service sucks.

I was wondering if i should cancel my order and get the smittybilt classic rock crawler and swing away. Is it a good bumper and can it support pulling 2 snowmobiles?

I could be mistaken, but I dont believe any of these bumpers are rated for towing.

correct they are not officially rated for towing but they will both be strong enough for what he is looking to tow.

Im guessing you should make more threads about bumpers.
