I've been looking and considering bumpers for a few weeks now.

I've seen the Demello, All Pro, ARB, tubes, and FabFours. I like the Fab Fours, just not the price.

Anyone know about the WARN bumper?

WARN BUMPER

I think the Demello and Allpro look the best and I don't care for the Warn. Looks kinda boxy. my 0.02. I may one day buy the Demello, just not in the cards right now.

the warn would be like having a fat chick on your hood 24/7.

I'll recommend the DeMello and the ARB.

The demello is light, strong, and has great approach angles... plus it looks killer!

The ARB is airbag compliant, will total another car before it gets scratched, built to last.

Landcruisersteve has a good thread comparing the 2 (Warn and All Pro). He owned both and liked the AllPro more. Maybe check out that thread. Personally, I want a bumper that can accompany a winch and lights. I don't care that the bumper is super strong. I expect it to be stronger then the stock, absorb some impact, but I do not expect or desire it to be so strong that it escapes the impact unscathed. If it's going to bend the front end in, just let it go. I don't want to have a good bumper but a crumpled front end. The AP bumper is slim, light, and has great approach angle. It's also cheap enough that I have money left over for other stuff. Fits the lines of the FJ pretty well too.

The overall look is fine for me with the WARN, and the one thing I really liked is the fog light mounts that were REALLY low, much lower than others, which is the idea for fog lights. Even being low, they were protected.

I guess I'll review the others, to see if they can be adapted for really low fog lights. The ARB looks like it would be difficult to do. I'll double check Demello.

If I ever swap out bumpers, I'm going with a Metal-Tech or Demello tube. Don't plan on hitting many deer or elk out in SoCal, and I'm sick of seeing the All Pro front bumper every where.
