Winch bumper advice?

I have a ex mod 110 I'm rebuilding and am looking for a winch compatible front bumper / brush guard. ARB seems to get bagged on a bit due to weight but that's not necessarily a negative, I'm more concerned with hitting a deer than rock crawling ability. What other options do you guys recommend?

Rockware, Rovertym, ECR's Safari Gard bumper or even a factory LR winch bumper.

What winch are you planning to run? This could matter in your bumper selection

I am running a Terrafirma that I got from Lucky8.

Well priced and very stout.

Here are some pics of my install.

Always more fun with pics. Rackware for strength, approach angle and front end protection gets my vote over and over again. Plus, Matt and those guys in Colorado are in general cool as shit and deserve the business. They've put in the effort to design their own bumper and they provide steller customer service to boot.

In the first pic you can see right front corner of my buddy's Safari Gard bumper. It has a slightly lower approach angle but is equally stout.

Good luck!
