I am about to buy a new rear bumper for my jeep.The bumper I am planning to get comes
with a receiver hitch attached to it. I was just wondering if as strong as a regular hitch. I dont
plan on towing anything just using it to get unstuck and snatched Mr. Green

I guess it depends on the quality of the bumper. The integral receiver hitch on the Jeeperman bumpers is tested at 40,000 pounds.

It depends both on the quality of the bumper as well as how well the bumper attaches to the frame. And remember, It doesn't matter how much the bumper can take if your frame can only take 3000 lbs.
