I haven't been very active on the sight but having had the Ironbull for a few years I can say that the coating is crap. It lifted in many places and the bumper is very rusted now. I'll pull it in the spring and have it sandblasted and recoated. I likely have some top hoops added. As for being a stout bumper, absolutely. I've not hit anything with it like a prius but its stood up to moderate trail use, some winch pulls and snatch strap pulls without moving or deflecting at all.

As far as original install, no issues everything mated up (got luck others had issues) but the angle of the mounting had it tilted down in the front a little so I shimmed it with a stack of two large washers on the lower mounting bolts. Needed to do this to keep the back edges from dimpling the front fenders at the wheel arch.

I'd buy a SW if I were doing it again. Mainly preference of the look but also quality.
