SRT-8 Bumper over Factory Limited model
 
Can i keep the original towing pkg from my limited and replace the bumper w/ srt-8 without clearance issues?

I think the cutouts for the exhaust are lower then your hitch would be and your stock exhaust might not clear the bumper since it appears to be a few inches lower then the limited bumper?

There's really no way to lower the hitch safely and retain to carrying capacity.
The factory WK hitch bolts directly to the unibody. Aftermarket hitches are different, and typically tie into the frame rails at the sides and are possible over-engineered as the aftermarket cannot be sure of the WK's particular metal strengths.
