If I can't put tow hooks on it should I just go for the ARB?
Also do you think I could install this with the help of the Dad, Mom, and the internet? Because getting it done is expensive, and doing it on your own feels better. No one in the house is very mechanically inclined.. but we have a nice socket set, and a decent garage. I would ultimately like to learn how to do everything myself, but just don't know where to start.
By the way you have a sweet jeep.
I don't care for the styling but its a good bumper. There are many very good options available to you - make sure you explore all of them. Forcing yourself to wait and be open minded is the best thing you can do for your wallet if you're wanting to buy a quality piece
Check out these brands for bumpers
They all make good stuff, all made in the US. Keep in mind that the more weight you put on your jeep the more your handling and performance will change. Staying light is key.
And absolutely you can do everything yourself. It's a good bonding time with your dad and will provide you with tons of life lessons and education that you wouldn't get anywhere else. It's a great experience to learn more about yourself and the vehicle you drive. Mechanical understanding is an invaluable bit of knowledge.

I never said what they make is junk (outside of their geometry brackets), just that its inappropriately recommended. They're a great place to start if you're starting small.

I don't like their overgrown heim joints joints, I don't like how their arms are designed and I don't like how they make their coils.
