    Not at all... The whole thing is 1/4" aluminum plate. I've pulled and/or been an anchor point for several recoveries with zero issues.

    I also took out a trailer hitch on a suburban the day after I first installed it. :eek:

    I paid around 1K total.

    Thanks Grimm Ill take a look. I was going to just get a guard but it seems those are useless and cause more extensive damage than if it wasn't there.

    Oh nice! Hmmm well I know aluminum is strong but its also very malleable so I just figure it would dent pretty easy even being 1/4". And that price is def cheaper then I thought. That's cool

    I have come across rough times and am unfortunately selling my Brute Force Hybrid. Billy did an awesome job on this bad boy. I live in Salt Lake City and am selling it for $700. It has been on my truck less then 1 month. I just rattle canned it btw. Feel free to give me a call or shoot me a text. 801-541-9339

    I wrote something about the demello bumper on the page before this. Maybe he just got a poorly put together bumper and every other one is high quality. Not sure though

    If its just for looks either one is fine. If its for off roading and crawling both aren't the best.

    x2. If I had to do it again, I would've got a Pelfreybilt. Tyler (Pelfreybilt owner) just didn't have the 2005-2011 out yet when I ordered and I hadn't really heard of him yet so I got a Demello.

    Not really anything wrong with the Demello, but I've heard Tyler's stuff has just incredible craftsmanship.

    All of them can be really light if you have it made out of aluminum. But out of steel, the hybrid bumpers are gonna be what you want

    One note, you might want to lower it down just a tad, with it that high up it might tap on your fenders/flares a bit.
