Good bumper? Whaddya think?

I was looking at bumpers from dirtworx. I was thinking I would get the one here Jeep front bumper CJ YJ TJ Wrangler : eBay Motors (item 150426239204 end time Mar-29-10 06:58:03 PDT)
They look good and strong enough. Anybody have any experience with these? Thank you all for sharing your thoughts.

I dont have any experiences with his front bumper but I love his rear swing out bumper and have it on my jeep. I cant imagine the front being much dif in quality than the rear either. Def great quality pieces and great price. Only downside is that they can take awhile to get since he makes them to order. The plus side of that though is that if you want something slightly different than his base product, he can customize the bumper to your liking. I would shoot him a message and ask what is the expected turn around time to get it. But if you dont mind a slight wait they are well worth it in my book. My custom rear bumper came out great!

I bought both front and rear. They are good quality and very strong. It took about 8 weeks to get them. I just cleaned them, then at least two coats of primer and about 3 coats of a satin black I got at Orchard supply. Use 220 sandpaper between each coat and try the bumper on before you paint, I had to do some tweakin to make the front one fit.
