bumper questions for a jk

Ok so I have an opportunity to get a expedition one trail series bumper for my jk at a good price. I don't know much about jeeps or bumpers.

How sturdy and well built is this bumper?

If I slide into a jeep or tree will it hold up or crumble and fold?

I'm not familiar with that one, but anything's better than the stock bumper.

Here's a review I found on line: Expedition One Trail Series Rear Bumper Review | Expeditionr

Thanks.

Expedition One bumpers are constructed of high-grade, precision cut 3/16″ steel. Standard on all bumpers are 1″ thick, 3/4″ recovery shackle mounts and D-Rings can be added at an additional cost."

Good or bad fabrication?

^^This.

From what I've read and heard, the Expedition 1 is good. Don't have knowledge of it first hand, but it's steel, and will more than likely punish anything you're gonna encounter. Rate of travel and solidity of the offending object notwithstanding, of course.
