I'm running a Demello 3 Hoop bumper on my FJ.

Front Bumper - Demello 3 Hoop FJfrontsnow-2-1


The bumper is very sturdy and simple to install. It was actually more
complicated removing the stock bumper than installing the Demello lol.

The recovery points on the front of the bumper are thinner than some other
bumpers, but they are not just welded onto the face of the bumper. The
recovery points are actually deeper than they appear and are part of the
frame on the bumper...so no worries there. I can't think of a single
bad thing to say about the bumper, I've been very pleased with the
bumper and the company's support.

The bumper has Acro 3 3/4" foglights (4"). I have the HID conversion kit and they are stupid bright! [The photo below is a stock photo and may not be the correct model number]

Some things worth noting:
-Need 2-3 people for install/alignment
-Bumper has to be removed for winch installation.
-Grille cannot be removed without loosening bumper (on 3 Hoop)

Updated the original post!

They are Acro foglights with the HID conversion.

One thing I don't like is there isn't a nice clear way to mount up off road lights on the bumper. I guess either fabbing up a mounting plate or drilling straight into the bumper are your only options...

I did use the bumper to push my way past a 4" tree the other day while turning around off road lol.

Definitely a one of the better looking bumpers for a non tube bumper.
