I ordered the steel version, never been a huge fan of aluminum armor on a jeep, but I do understand its lure.

Looks good, thanks

Thanks. I really like the aluminum. I spend most of my wheeling time in rocks, and have found that I beat on the rear bumper more than the front. It has held up just fine. The only abuse you can see is from my crappy rattle-can paint coming off.

I live on the road, towing my Jeep behind my motorhome. My goal was to keep it as light as possible, which is why I went with the aluminum rear bumper (and tire carrier and fenders). I have not been disappointed at all.

Seems like aluminum would be the way to go to save weight if you DD more on the road than trailing.

I'm pretty sure that is most Jeeps - more road than trail. I am offroad a lot, but not nearly as much as road driving. My Jeep is my only vehicle, so of course it sees pavement more than trail, but that is not to say it is a mall crawler. I see a lot of rocks and trails. I spent 6 months in Moab last year. I travel to find wheeling spots. The aluminum bumper is no slouch. I beat the hell out of it and it takes the abuse.

The aluminum bumper should not be taken as a mall crawler accessory. It has taken several years of abuse on my rig, and will be seeing lots more. It is not like mine is a dedicated trail machine, but with what I do, it is a viable option to keep things light.

Unrelated. But where did you guys wire the rear backup lights? And how do you get them to come on only when in reverse?

I just tapped mine into the existing backup lights.
