    AllPro is too flimsy? The Apex weighs in closer to 150 pounds. Great welds, great angles. It take it over a tube bumper.

    I voted Allpro because there wasn't an option for Bruteforce :) I like the look much better than ARB personally. It's all personal opinion for looks and I am going the rattlecan route as well. Duplicolor Bed Armour Black Can

    The All-Pro bumper is stronger than tube bumpers, especially in the "wings" sections. And Demello's mounting scheme is similar to All-Pro's standard bumper, worse than the Apex.

    Maybe 130... felt like 150. If I had installed a winch I never would have gotten it on the truck by myself, probably wouldn't even have been able to get it off the ground.

    I don't know how the 3 piece was made, but the APEX is a beast.

    ARB or TMJ will require heavier shooks because of their weight.

    I went all pro. I didn't like how the ARB used the top inch or two of the original bumper on the 2012-13. (mostly because mine was tore there. i'm happy with the all pro apex though. looks pretty sharp. haven't had any bumps really.

    AllPro Apex bumper looks the best IMO.

    I'm ordering mine in June.

    The original all pro bumper's wings would shake at high speed and bend if any of the truck's weight came to rest on them while rock crawling. I removed my light bar and needed a hi lift jack to get the mounting points to line up upon re-install.

    The powder coating flakes like it's spray paint. I have experienced that with my all pro bumper, rear bumper, and long travel kit.

    I had my bumper for 2-3 years of hard use. It was not bad, but it was certainly not the best. Certianly did not offer enough protection to justify its weight. A one piece design is much better.

    Yeah, not a chance in hell I was going to buy their three-piece. ***cough cough JUNK cough cough*** Thankfully they introduced the Apex just as I was looking and I got in on the group buy. The Apex really is robust. I had it shipped bare and was able to check out the welds. Solid work. I've had it on there for a year and sometimes still have to stop and stare at it.
