HREW bumpers are strong, but Trail-Gear had to take things to the next level by making our bumpers out of 1020 DOM (1.75" X .120" wall) with a .25" CNC formed steel plate winch mount.
1020 DOM is more dent resistant than HREW tubing and it will not split down the seam as we have all seen the cheaper HREW tubing do. We can confidently say that our Rock Defense™ bumpers are one of the strongest on the market.
Mounting holes on the winch plate are drilled for most 5000-9500 model low-profile winches and smaller sized 9.0R Warn competition winches. For larger winches some minor trimming of the grill may be required. Bumper also features a shackle receiver mount that will make a great anchor point for winch or strap recoveries.
Note: Unpainted steel finish. Will not work with roller type fairlead, requires hawse type fairlead 3" tall or shorter. Not intended for use with a body lift. Bumper not rated for towing.
Perfect fit (96 fzj80), installed in 30 minutes including removal of old bumper, hardest part was deciding paint color, I rattle canned mine so it would be easy on touch up, I fully intend on bashing everything now

I am happy with the Trail Gear Rock Defense Front Bumper for my 80 series land cruiser. It came bare metal so I painted it myself. If you want it to look really nice get it powder coated. I know that no matter what I will scrap it up so for me I prefer spray paint that I can touch up myself
