Hey all, I've finally had enough of bottoming out the stupid brush guard (which actually lowered my factory clearance) I put on my FJ when I knew nothing about nothing early on. I'm looking for a new aftermarket. I'd like to be able to make no body modifications to the truck, I don't want to spend a large fortune, gotta look good and be able to take a winch......oh and my two KC lights. What type and the best place to get one either local or not.

Oh yeah, and I'm really looking for very little trade off for weight from the new bumper compared to my current setup. And obviously better my attack angle.

I like my ARB. But I think the Demello is one of the lightest and offers better approach angle.

Homedad, how does your Expedition 1 compare to a Demello?

I've owned the ARB, the All-Pro before my redesiegn, and now run the Expidition one.

The All-Pro had the best angles but sucked otherwise.

The ARB is the tank of the bunch but the weight and approach angles sucked bad.

I think/feel the Expedition One is the best of both worlds....rock solid and great angles with three or four different front bar options.

The Demello I have no experience with other then a few horror stories of the LONG ass wait to actually get one. and the frame to bumper support seems ....well....I don't know....just not right. IMO.
