Attached are a couple pictures of my Devon 4x4 bumper designed to fit the 8274.

I must say the quality of this bumper is great, the finish when new was spectacular (it is scraped and scuffed now) and the welds are top notch. The steering skid is steel and attaches to a frame that bolts directly to the cross member under the radiator, so I know you won't find a stronger bumper.

There are a lot of Rockware bumpers use by members of this board. I just got one and can see why. Matt @ Rockware is great to deal with and he makes a solid product. The ECR/Safety Devices one looks really good too and sounds like it's dropping soon. And then add Rovertym to the list - they have one listed on their site too.
