Otherwise? That "exclusive" bumper looks pretty good to me. Not going to be quite as strong if you "drop" the corner of that bumper on a rock, but if you don't do that much big rock crawling, that's not a big deal. I do like the idea of lower weight if it's not weight you need...

My current front bumper is clipped so it only extends a minimal amount past the frame. It maybe adds 1/2-1/4" to the overhang which I really like. Deer wouldn't be a problem with the height of the Jeep and the winch up front though. I go back and forth with wanting the ARB even though I don't really need it. I like the streamline look of the bumper though. I used to have a big and I mean big bull bar back in the 90's. I didn't like the weight and the overhang which is why I modified the stock bumper.
