smittybilt makes some that are awesome. No need for a base plate if you intend to tow the Jeep

I went with the LOD Armor Lite. About 40 lbs and looks great. They sell clevis adapters for Blue Ox and one other too.

I went with the Rockhard with the Rockhard BO adapters.
With the lift and larger tires I also had to raise the receiver 3" to keep the tow bar level.

First you need to decide on the bumper width you want. Frame width, half width or full width.

Next decide if you want a modular bumper that you can add parts to or take parts away.

I doubt you will ever use a winch so maybe consider a bumper that is configured to look complete even without a winch bolted on to it.

Cheapest Rockhard is 879$. That's a bit out of my budget.
