    OK so it's time to get a bumper. I've researched my options: ARB, Allpro, or Shrockworks. I would like to get the Allpro as it looks the best, has fog light and off-road light capabilities, replaceable sections, and can hold a winch. I like the ARB and Shrockworks bumper as well, but they seem too bulky & heavy, and look goofy with the headlight bars in front.

    Has anyone had any major issues with their front bumpers?? I heard that the winch plate was weak and can cause issues. Also any issues with the bumper hitting the headlights (coming up into the front end of grille). I do plan on putting a winch in this. any feedback is much appreciated :D

    the arb bumpers have holes on top for lights right into them so you do not need to add a bull bar on top of it.. The ARB bumper is large but heavty and can take a beating...

    I have taken off, apart and reinstalled my All Pro bumper 4 times now (for various reasons) and it's fit different every single time. The multiple sections are nice on shipping (can go UPS, doesn't need freight) but honestly, the way it's all assembled and designed, I can't imagine damage to one section wouldn't cause damage to other sections.

    I like the look of it, but when I start building on my truck again, I'm gonna replace mine with one from Shrockworks.
