True North Fabrication Hybrid Bumper

Has anyone tried the True North Fabrication Hybrid bumper? Looks great, seems to be lighter weight, and is on sale right now for 900 shipped with black Friday pricing, which seems like a steal.

I know this is an older post but I ordered their plate bumper DIY kit. I've heard good things about them as they got their start here in the Twin Cities.

Mine is actually on the way xD. Should be here in about 3 weeks.

Did you buy the recovery point and bumper tie-in? I saw on FB that he recommends them before you do any winching with it.

I've had my eye on their bumpers for a little bit now. Looking forward to seeing how these turn out.

Any updates on the bumper? Curious about these tabs and how much easier they would make it to weld together. The idea of building it off the truck + the hybrid look make me interested in it. Looks like a good kit.

I've had it for a couple of months, though I did the welded instead of the weld together. I don't own any welding equipment and decided this wasn't the project to start on.

The good is that the fit and finish is superb. No gaps, etc. Really good in that respect. The winch space is tight, but fits well, and the weight on it is very reasonable. Also, mounting LED pods in the wings works really well for aux lighting.

My only real complaint is the lack of recovery points. Just seems crazy that it doesn't have any front loops or whatever.

If you want something lightweight, in my mind this is the way to go.
