Opinions on Bestop HighRock 4x4 front Bumper

I'm looking at picking this front bumper up

Anyone have experience with this bumper? Good Quality? Easy bolt on? You happy with it?
I like the full width bumper and this looks like it will allow maximum clearance for full width. Thanks for any opinions and info!

Thanks guys! Gonna pick this up this week! $195 including tax from a local auction company. Supposedly it has some scuffs on it and it looks like it is missing one of the fog light things. Surely I can pick one of those up pretty easy. What else am I missing? Here is a pic of it -

Looks like you are missing another one of the fog light holders, and the top bar. Shouldn't be very expensive at all to get those pieces.

If I remember off the top of my head, the top bar piece I wanna say was like $100-150 bucks if that. (up here in Canada)

Congrats on the score!!

Thanks man! The cheapest I have seen this bumper was on amazon for $453 without the grill guard hoop. I figure if this has some light scuffs on it it will still be worth $195. I will probably order the grill guard after I get the bumper installed. Now I just need to contact Bestop to get that fog light holder.

Man, I wish up here in Canada it was $453! Mine was almost double that price !

At $195, man nicely done! As you say, even if there are light scuffs, so what! Paint is cheap! ha ha

Any idea what this full width bumper weighs?

I like it and have it on my short list, but would like to find one in the 85-90 lbs. these 120 + ones seem jus too heavy.

For you guys who have the HighRock bumper and winch, have you tried winching with it yet? I really want additional protection from a full width that's a straightforward bolt-on. One concern with the HighRock, if it's legit, is it supposedly bends when winching. I really like the looks of this bumper for a full width option with no frame cutting or vacuum pump relocate. So, for you who have the HighRock and winch, is it reinforced enough (now) that it doesn't flex/bend when winching? What are your experiences?

Something else that puzzles me is out of all the "reviews" I read on this bumper, some have said it weighs ~50lbs and others, in this thread for example, indicate over 80lbs; is it possible they made a lightweight one at 1/8" thick but now they're all 3/16" thick? Some other bumper mfrs use 1/8" thick plate or aluminum for their lightweight versions. Feedback appreciated.

Ref Youtube video from 2009 (I wonder if this one is 3/16" thick?):
