I had narrowed my favorites to two, (EXP1 or Demello), then your post and now I like that LOD one the best, maybe, I think. Clean lines, backup lights, tug points, hitch provision. Do you have it? Was it easy to install?
I've had the LOD on mine for a couple years and had an LOD on my jeep before.
Good bumper with nice swing out tire carrier, Gerry cans etc, but they pissed me off. The bumper didn't line up right, took 5 + hours messing with it to get it to mount up and then the spare has standard lugs on it so I had to buy a new set of lugs and locks just for the spare. Not very bright on their part and when I told him about it he said "yeah we could custom make something"... custom? I mean, c'mon on a 1500$ bumper with all the extras I got? Seriously? Well, never heard from them again... would I buy it again? No way... if it gets damaged it's getting an exp 1...
You can see it in my build thread scrufy animal. Nice bumper but not worth the trouble.

Edit - guess I don't have a full on back picture but this is a side view of the LOD...

Glad to hear your bumper is put to good use! I like having a trailer hitch so the rocks scrape on that and not the actual bumper haha
Metal Tech sells a hitch receiver that bolts to the frame or if you want a bit more protection, you could get a Curt or Reese receiver hitch.

On a side note, it looks like Metal Tech isn't selling the original Red Eye anymore... Or at least it's not on their website.

Considering how much the frame flexes, the body is on rubber cushions mounted to the frame making even more movement, that rear fender is going to get crushed in a bind.

Are there actual reported instances of people flexing their bumpers into their body panels? Or are you both just assuming? The only reason I'm asking is because I really like the WAM bumper design
