aluminum definately wont hold up as well as a steel bumper. I don,t think that any of the steel tube bumpers will hold up very well if hit on the outside edge of the bumper, but all of the aftermarket bumper will hold up a lot better than the tin can bumper that ford puts on this truck.

I think they told me the steel one was 50 lbs. I am sure it does help with the approach angle. My truck has the wsi 3 over hd springs and progressive coils on mid perch which raised the truck 3 inches in the front. I caved the stock skid plate in and have not yet even touched this one.

beadblaster, hows the fit of your bumper? I have the sam thing and mine is somewhat laid back. I also bought the rear aluminum bumper and it looks warped from day one.

Mine also was laid back slightly. I went and added a couple of body fender shims between the bumper and frame on the top bolt and this lined it up perfectly. I am going to order the back bumper but have a concern if they are warped. I may get a steel back bumper because I have the hd wsi springs on the truck.

i hit a gate with this bumper, it may actually be weaker than the stock one... it just bent back. i always thought aluminum would break before it would bend but i was wrong

I can send you pics of mine. Most people dont see the slight warp, but it bugs me. If you are interested i can sell it to you.
