Warn bumper enginuity.. ???

So I had my heart set on Expedition 1 bumpers when I was shopping around for a winch and stumbled across this:

http://www.warn.com/truck/mounting-s...t_bumper.shtml

I'm not crazy about full width bumpers but this looks pretty slick.

I know Warn is legendary for their winch but does anyone have experience with their bumpers?

Edit: I realize that I misspelled ingenuity.

The YJ bumper I had was solid, powdercoating from Warn isn't the best either.

Would you recommend Warn as a good bumper manufacturer based on the performance on your YJ?

My buddy has a warn rock crawler set up on his jeep and it takes a lot of abuse. I would not hesitate to buy a warn product if you like what you see. If you have concerns call them and ask what they do to stand behind their product.

Every Warn bumper I have seen has rusted. Nothing that weaken the bumper just effected the finish/looks.

Ok I was planning on bed lining anyway. Looks like I'll be going with this full width after all.

Thanks all. I'm putting all of my parts together to start a build thread..
