Aluminess Bumper question

Has anybody had overheating problems with an Aluminess bumper and a 6.0 PSD?

The 6.0 vans have limited cooling capacity and it looks like the bumper blocks air flow to the lower 1/3 of the radiator. Where the factory bumper has extra slots in the bottom of the air dam, the Aluminess has solid metal.

I had some overheating issues until I drilled a bunch of 2" holes into the part of my Warn bumper that blocked the bottom of my radiator.

I haven't had any cooling problems even with the higher winch. See the photos in the other forum. I've been crawling around Baja and the temp gage never moves. The bumper doesn't block any of the radiator.
