Ive never really been a fan of bumpers with tubing on the sides... but besides that I dont think its work it. I have a Smitty XRC front and wasnt a fan as soon as I opened the box. Crappy powdercoating and thin metal... especially the tabs on the hoop to mount lights. A child with a small hammer could easily break them off. I would like to see Smitty's steel thickness tolerances and powdercoating specs... That is if they even have quality control!

Might as well get one from one of the better known companies and pay that little bit extra. Im currently a fan of JCR Offroad. But Poison Spyder, LOD, ACE Engineering, Crawler Conceptz, ARB, Shrockworks (if you can wait), and a number of other vendors seem to have quality products.

Bumper is heavy, over 100 lbs. the whole thing is 3/16" steel. Theres no way a hammer would be taking off light tabs they have about 5 " of weld. they have a very unique shape in order to work with standard lights and LED light bars, you can also mount lights on top and bottom of the mounts.

I like the gen 2 bumpers better but prefer the xrc plate steel over tube, I have been waiting over 6 months for them to release the rear gen 2, got tired of waiting so I got a tera flex carrier and now saving money for the tera flex rear bumper
