Depending on the year of your Wrangler, you can got tow shackles (leaf spring, YJ Wrangler) or the aforementioned heavy bumper with tow points. I can tell you that those bumpers are made for recovery, and yanking the Jeep out of the mud or other stuck situation puts way more stress on those points than flat towing will. So I'd trust them. You may also have to remove your Jeep's rear driveshaft. If you're looking to shave weight, a 4-cylinder Wrangler weighs much less than a 6-cylinder and will run all week on a tank of gas...
