Hi folks. As the title states, I’m having difficulty figuring out what brand rear bumper I have. I picked it up from a family who was selling it after their father had passed away. It’s new and has never been installed and it appears to have a lot if not all of the parts to assemble. What I don’t know is the brand of bumper. They claimed it was an ARB bumper but I knew right away it wasn’t. Any help would be appreciated. Here’s some pics to help. Thanks.

Looks like the discontinued All-Pro Apex Rear, except for the cut-out logo. The swing outs make it a rare find!

Post some photos of inside showing the pivot attachment.

Extra gusseting to resist deflection of swing out, which was an issue.
It is a real pain to install this bumper using all the gusset attachment to side of frame holes and keeping it aligned evenly. Self tapping metal fasteners require a lot of torque which is almost impossible to do in a space your fist won't fit in. I had to mount at center only, adjusting for even fit, mark gusset holes on frame, unmount bumper, drill and tap frame, reinstall bumper with bolts in all positions.... a real b¡tch.

If I were doing a swing out I would strongly consider welding gusset to frame. A much stronger connection with way less labor.

So yes, definitely Lucrum swing-outs. Sad about their story. The bumper does look like All-Pro but not the one All-Pro sent me instructions for. It looks identical to and All-Pro I saw on another site but the shackle mounts are integrated/welder into my bumper.
