It depends on what you're looking for. The Lucrum is a great functional setup that's affordable and keeps the stock look. The DeMello (and others) offer a lot more protection, and as you said, approach angle. I've got the DeMello, so I'm biased. I love it!
On another note, please take time to proofread your postings. Not only are these products related to the FJ, but they are their creators names. Have some respect.
Same here! Saving and waiting on Jason to post his group buy.
My $0.02 - Six months ago I started looking at winch bumpers and thought about the Lucrum. There is even another FJ that sometimes parks near my work with the Lucrum. Biggest turn off for me was the fact that to install you have to remove the factory inner metal bumper. Once you do this, you loose the support for your stock outer bumper.
Demello is a real bumper with all the protection you would need. Safer if in an accident!
I would go Demello. I love mine. The added approach angle is worth it and it looks damn good. Not everyone is as luckey as me and has the man himself install the bumper in a hotel parking lot in Ouray Colorado though. That's Jason in the green shirt.
