Truck Defender Bumpers

Does anyone have any experience with Truck Defender bumpers? I'm in the market for a new bumper and would like to go aluminum for the weight savings. I have looked at several different companies and I think Truck Defender has the nicest looking ones out there. Seem to be built plenty sturdy as well. I had never heard of them before last week though so looking to see if there is anyone with first hand experience with them.

Iíve never heard of them, but they do look good from the photos they show.

Finally got my Truck Defender bumper and got it installed. The overall quality of the bumper is really nice. The only two minor complaints that I have are the gap under the headlights is more than I would like and they don't polish the entire guard, only the front side. The gap under the headlights is about 3/4" which isn't terrible but I would like a little less. There was actually enough adjustment to close is to where I wanted but then the grill hit the bumper and hood wouldn't latch. Overall, I like the bumper

From the the distance the photos where taken the gap isnít that noticeable. A good looking bumper in my opinion. Are the two holes closest to the uprights for tow hooks?

Yes, the model I got uses the factor tow hooks. They also make a "sport" bumper that is winch ready that had lugs for two clevis.
