ARB makes a bumper with bed protection. It requires a fill panel that installs below the tailgate. The only problem with this design is that it does not increase your departure angle over the stock bumper and hitch setup. The vertical plate that hangs down will just dig into the ground as well.
If you look at JeniorNVs build thread you will see her modified Calmini rear bumper that she had bed protection added to. Calmini really should make them that way.
