Will I have a problem towing a 4x8 UHaul cargo trailer with my 2005 Rubicon? It has an aftermarket bumper with a hitch.
Which aftermarket bumper?
Lots of the aftermarket bumpers with hitch aren't rated for towing, just for putting a bike rack or something in the hitch.
You look in there to see if there are bumper tie ins. They are pieces adding extra strength to the bumper.

You have a hard top? U haul doesn’t rent to vehicles with soft tops..
Ugh! where can I get these tie-ins?

In this pic, see the 2 bolts on the left. A tie in will use those bolts and use the 2 holes in the frame to the right.
Where to find them? Google is your friend. Find out the manufacturer of your bumper and check if they sell tie ins to use.
