I have installed Bearmach bumpers and they seem strong and look good.
Just did this one for a customer-

Thumbs up

I just put on a First Four Tubular and had to cut the bottom off the metal shroud around the grill ( not sure of the correct terminology for that piece ). I will also need to remove a good chunk out of the grill to get the winch in as I think I have an AC ready defender. Bumpers for AC equipped defenders stick out farther. This vehicle is not going to be returned to stock, ever, as I intend to wheel the daylights out of it, so cutting some here and there does not matter. The bumper sits in VERY tight so approach angle is incredible. Fitting was a piece of cake, finish is fantastic, and the swivel recovery points look tough enough. The bumper as a whole feels ten to fifteen times stronger than the stock bumper.
