TJM Bull Bar bumper

I've been looking at upgrading my bumpers and I came across the TJM Bull Bar front bumper. Really like the look but I can't find much about it...like price. I know they are an Australian company and have been around for a while. I did read that they were a little less expensive then ARB, which they look a lot like...rather I also read that ARB looks a lot like them since they have been around longer then ARB. What I would like to know...has anyone had one, are they well made, how much do they cost and any other info...like where can I get one. Please don't say, just get an ARB...I can't justify the price as this will be mainly for looks. I don't plain on getting a winch either...that is why I like the look of this bumper, no fairlead hole in the center. Here is the official name:
T17 Winch Compatible Bumper - 074SO17N36Y

Just something to consider. When I first got my 97 TJ I bought the ARB front bumper. That same summer I also bought (from various companies) headlight and tailight guards (by xtreme), rear steel corner guards (warrior products), side "reverse-a-bars (by olympic), and rocker guards (by warn), all in black powder coat finish. 3 years ago I had to pull everything off and have it professionally repowder coated because the coatings all peeled or chipped off. Everything that is EXCEPT the ARB front bumper, which still looks almost new. The place I took the parts to explained that most companies really take the cheap way with their powdercoat finishes. So anything I order thats not ARB I try to order "bare" and have them done at the local shop before installing, all the parts i've had done, including some dirtbike frames (done 6-7 years ago) still look almost new. I keep my toys a long time and HATE doing things twice.

Thanks for the link...can't believe I didn't see that, I've googled that bumper at least 15 times...lol. Price seems pretty good as well. I would love to hear from anyone that has owned a TJM bumper...on a Jeep or other. I have read on other sites about TJM bull bars on Toyota's in "Aussie land" and they seem to really like them and they hold up really well. Most people say they are built just as good as ARB...just less expensive. Also read that TJM is trying to edge into the US market so hopefully we will start to see and hear more of them.
